Time-off provisions for employee representatives in Europe - Background paper
Most countries give employee representatives the opportunity to fulfil their tasks. Time off is generally provided, although the number of hours varies from one country to another. This report combines an overview on the time-off provided in the legal frameworks of the different EU Member States with an analysis of what this means in practice for the employee representatives. Eurofound collected data on time off for employee representatives in its European Company Survey (ECS) in 2009.
