Modernizing labour law to meet the challenges of the 21st century

Commission launches open debate

The European Commission launched a broad open public debate on reviewing labour law and adaptation to the modern world of work. The discussion paper will ask Member States, social partners and other stakeholder how labour law at EU and national level can help the job market become more flexible while maximizing security for workers (the 'flexicurity' approach).

The consultation will run over a period of four months and its contributions will feed into in the upcoming Commission communication on flexicurity in June 2007.
