European Council Recommendation on access to social protection for workers and the self-employed

As part of the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights, the European Commission has adopted a proposal for a Council Recommendation on access to social protection for workers and the self-employed. Following the proposal, the EPSCO Council agreed on a recommendation on its 6-7 December session.

The objective is to support people in non-standard forms of employment and self-employment who, due to their employment status, are not sufficiently covered by social security schemes and thus are exposed to higher economic uncertainty.
