Working conditions : report
Working conditions are one of the key areas covered by European Union law. This legislation include provisions that define minimum requirements for all workers in a range of areas including working hours, information and consultation of workers, occupational health and safety at work as well as conditions for part time, full time and temporary agency workers. To further explore Europeans' actual experiences of working conditions the Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion commissioned the following survey. This survey was designed to explore a range of questions about working conditions and occupational health and safety, including: - Workers' general opinions about the state and trends of working conditions in their country, - Satisfaction with their working conditions in general, as well as specific areas such as working hours, workload, autonomy and work-life balance, - Access to paid holidays, rest periods and flexibility at work, - Information and consultation, and - Health and safety at work, including the experience of work related health problems or accidents.
