Abstract

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), Germany’s oldest political foundation, which has a close connection to social democracy and free trade unions, commissioned Jan Cremers (TLS) a preparatory report on the future functioning, competences and structure of the European Labour Authority, a proposal launched by European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker. In his preliminary study that is available online Cremers explores problems in the area of cross-border labour mobility and concludes that the aim to work towards fair working conditions in the Single Market could be enhanced by the establishment of such an Authority. He suggests that a European Labour Authority should legitimise and facilitate cross-border cooperation between national compliance and enforcement authorities. The main task should be to solve disputes in case of infringements and breaches related to labour mobility and/or cross-border recruitment.
