European Labour Authority published its work programme for 2023
ELA’s Annual Work Programme defines the Authority’s work and priorities for 2023 and it is part of the Single Programming Document 2023-2025.
Closer focus of ELA in 2023 will be on the construction sector, which represents the EU’s biggest employer and is particularly affected by labour mobility. Particularly, ELA will aim to improve information on rights and obligations in construction sector and prepare EU-wide campaign targeted to the construction sector, support joint and concerted inspections in the construction sector to strengthen cross-border enforcement of the rules.
Building on the foundation work done in the last two years, ELA will continue targeted activities in seasonal work and road transport, while expanding work in other means of transport.
ELA activities facilitating cross-border enforcement will involve enforcement campaigns targeting specific problematic sectors or issues of a cross-border nature, including road transport and construction.
ELA will also further invest efforts in development and visibility of the European Network of Public Employment Services (EURES).
Regarding the improvement of cooperation exchange between the Member States ELA is launching cooperation program Posting 360 designed for Member States and social partners to address cooperation issues in the field of posting of workers.
ELA will continue to support Member States in tackling undeclared work, and will facilitate use of digital tool supporting labour mobility.
