Type: Acts of the European Union: European Parliament Resolution on Responding to petitions on tackling precariousness and the abusive use of fixed-term contracts

Authority: European Authorities - European Union: European Parliament

Date: 05/31/2018

Subject: The European Parliament understands precarious employment to mean employment which arises from, among other things, an abusive use of temporary employment contracts in violation of international standards on working conditions, labour rights and EU law; underlines that precarious employment implies higher exposure to socio-economic vulnerability, insufficient resources for a decent life and inadequate social protection; it calls on the Commission to step up its efforts to end unfair terms in employment contracts by addressing all abuses and loopholes; acknowledges the new proposal for a directive on Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions, which aims to establish new rights for all workers, particularly in order to improve working conditions for workers in new forms of employment and non-standard employment, while limiting the burdens on employers and maintaining labour market adaptability; finally it invites the Member States to improve job standards in non-conventional jobs by providing, at the very least, a set of minimum standards for social protection, minimum wage levels and access to training and development
