EU law impacts your business more than you may think. EU directives and regulations in the field of social policy are to an ever-larger extent defining the legal landscape in which companies operate. Throughout the EU, a set of uniform – and recently modified - rules on the posting of workers have been implemented to prevent social dumping and ensure a level playing field for all businesses while simultaneously protecting workers’ rights.
Similarly, social protection is increasingly ensured on matters including minimum wages, collective bargaining and the status of the gig-economy workers and whistleblowers. Recent case law rendered by the European Court of Justice confirms the EU’s firm stance on matters such as equal pay, non-discrimination and working conditions.
This Lexology hosted webinar aims to give you an overview of recent EU regulatory initiatives as well as decisions rendered by the European Court of Justice on matters relevant to HR professionals. From the vantage point of 2020, we will look at what lies ahead for 2021.
