The European Commission proposes the setting up of a European Labour Authority, that could be based in Romania, European Commission Representation head Angela Cristea told a news conference on Wednesday.
“The European Commission makes three proposals. The first is the setting up of a European Labour Agency. The second recommendation is that all freelancers benefit from a minimum package of six social protection services. The third is the establishment of a monitoring system regarding the manner in which member states managed to ensure this social protection for all freelancers working on the EU territory,” Cristea mentioned.
She stressed that this agency is needed because currently there are very different levels of social protection from one member state to another, but also among various categories of employees of the same country.
