  • ERM Quarterly - Quarter 1, April 2014

    According to the most recent European economic forecast from the European Commission’s DG-ECFIN, the recovery is broadening, as some measure of modest growth returns to the majority of Member States.

This first issue for 2014 includes: Macroeconomic trends and prospects; Job creation and job loss at a glance (1/1/14 - 31/3/14); Sectoral distribution of job losses/job gains, and top five cases; National collective redundancy provisions; Sector in focus: Steep jobs decline in German PV industry; Sector in focus: More jobs losses in financial sector.
  • ERM Quarterly - Issue 4, January 2014

    Recent months have seen an improvement in economic outlook, a calming of the sovereign debt crisis and a stabilisation of unemployment rates. ECB President Mario Draghi was, however, cautious in his assessment of the emergent European recovery in January, calling it ‘modest’, ‘weak’ and ‘fragile’. This fourth issue for 2013 includes: Macroeconomic trends and prospects; Job creation and job loss at a glance (1/10/13 - 31/12/13); Sectoral distribution of job losses/job gains, and top five cases; Support instruments for restructuring in Greece; Cases in focus: RTVV, Spain - Liepajas Metalurgs, Latvia; Retail sector in focus – Amazon's expansion.
  • Young people and temporary employment in Europe

    Young people in Europe have been particularly affected by the recession: by mid-2013, the unemployment rate among people aged 24 and under was over 23%. A large proportion of workers in this age group are employed on temporary rather than permanent contracts (42% compared to just 10% of workers aged 25–64). While temporary or fixed-term contracts can be a stepping stone in the transition from education into work, they can also trap young people in insecure jobs. This report from the European Restructuring Monitor is based on data from correspondents in 28 EU Member States and Norway. It examines the reasons for the growth in temporary employment contracts across the EU and explores the situation regarding access to social protection for young people on such contracts. It reviews the measures put in place in various countries to regulate the use of these contracts – often with a view to encouraging the transition to standard contracts – and finally presents the opinions of the social partners on the issue.
