Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Provisional agreement on more transparent and predictable working conditions in the EU

The Romanian presidency of the Council and the European Parliament signed a provisional agreement on 7 February concerning a directive aimed at meeting the labour-market challenges represented by demographic change, the digital transition and new forms of employment. The agreement will now be submitted to the Member States’ representatives in the EU Council for approval.

Once enacted, the new legislation will repeal the Written Statement Directive dating from 1991 and will establish new minimum rights and new rules concerning the substance, the form and the time limits for communication to workers of information regarding their working conditions.
