EU Labour Law covers 2 main areas:
- working conditions – working hours, part-time & fixed-term work, posting of workers,
- informing & consulting workers about collective redundancies, transfers of companies, etc.
European labour law regulates basic transnational standards of employment and partnership at work in the European Union and countries adhering to the European Convention on Human Rights. In virtually all cases, the EU follows the principle that member states can always create rights more beneficial to workers.
