EU 4 fair work

In March 2020, the ELA launched #EU4FairWork, the first EU campaign about the benefits of declared work, with participation of the European Commission and the European Platform tackling undeclared work (later set up as a permanent working group at ELA).

The campaign combines a social media approach (March-October 2020) with a Week of Action (21-25 September 2020). It aimed to:

  • raise awareness amongst workers about their rights, the negative impact of undeclared work and how to make the transition into declared work
  • make companies aware of the benefits of and their obligations to declare workers, as well as of the risk of sanctions in case of undeclared work
  • encourage policymakers to better tackle undeclared work, through policy and legislation
  • increase cooperation among Platform members by implementing the campaign together

Week of Action 21-25 September

Campaign supporters, which include social partners and national enforcement authorities, have carried out a wide range of activities during the Week of Action. Activities across Europe included online communication campaigns, bilateral cooperation and inspections, information sessions and a range of other activities at national, regional and local levels.
