Every year, up to 850,000 EU citizens engage in seasonal work in another EU country.
Seasonal workers employed across borders are entitled to a broad set of rights, but given the temporary nature of their work, they are more vulnerable to precarious living and working conditions. The Covid19 pandemic has aggravated seasonal workers’ conditions, and exposed them to increased health risks.
To raise the awareness of seasonal workers and the employers hiring them on existing rights, obligations and counselling services, the European Labour Authority has launched the information campaign “Rights for all seasons”, in partnership with the European Commission, the EURES network, the European Platform tackling undeclared work, EU countries and social partners.
#Rights4AllSeasons: ELA's 2021 awareness raising campaign
A social media campaign ran from mid-August until the end of September 2021 using the hashtags #Rights4AllSeasons, #EU4FairWork. The campaign accumulated to a Week of Action which took place between 20-24 September 2021.
