Description

The Platform seminar provided participants with an opportunity to reflect on existing practices, tools and approaches that deal with undeclared work in the agricultural sector in Europe. Discussions focused on method and tools for the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work in the agricultural sector and Platform members, observers and social partners played an active and central role in the day.

The seminar brought together Platform members or designated representatives from EU Member States (MS) representing labour inspectorates and social security, tax and customs authorities, and national and European social partner representatives from the agricultural sector. The intention was to provide participants with an opportunity to engage in mutual learning and exchange knowledge on how to tackle undeclared work in the agricultural sector and transform undeclared into declared work. Participants reflected on the pros and cons of different national and bilateral efforts to tackle undeclared work in agriculture more effectively, especially in relation to seasonal workers and horticulture. They also assessed transnational initiatives.
