LABOUR LAW AND WORK ORGANISATION

The adoption of legislation setting minimum requirements has improved labour standards and strengthened workers' rights and is one of the EU's main achievements in the field of social policy.

The Community shall support and complement the activities of the Member States in the area of social policy. In particular, it defines minimum requirements at EU level in the fields of working and employment conditions and the information and consultation of workers. Improving living and working conditions in Member States depends on national legislation.
