In November 2010, the Employment Committee (EMCO) issued a report (239Kb PDF)
[1] on the quality of work [2] in the European Union. The report was based on
the findings of a thematic review held in June 2010 which aimed to examine
and exchange experiences about labour market policies intended to promote
quality of work with a focus on measures designed to manage the recent
economic crisis.
