Enforcement of Fundamental Workers’ Rights

Emanuela Canetta, Styliani Kaltsouni, Nicole Busby

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This study provides an overview of international and European law regulating a
selection of fundamental workers’ rights (freedom of association and the right to
collective bargaining, age antidiscrimination, the right to health and safety at
work). It then analyses their enforcement in seven Member States (France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Sweden, Netherlands and United Kingdom). On the basis of these findings, it explores possible ways forward for improved enforcement of fundamental workers’ rights in the European Union, not only in times of economic
crisis, but in the long term.
