PURPOSE: to establish a Platform to enhance EU cooperation in the prevention of undeclared work.

LEGISLATIVE ACT: Decision (EU) 2016/344 of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing a European Platform to enhance cooperation in tackling undeclared work.

CONTENT: the Decision establishes a Platform, at Union level, to enhance cooperation between Member States in tackling undeclared work . For the purpose of this Decision, ‘tackling’, in relation to undeclared work, means preventing, deterring and combating undeclared work as well as promoting the declaration of undeclared work. Member States remain competent to decide on their level of involvement in the activities approved at plenary level by the Platform.

The European Parliament in its resolution of 14 January 2014 welcomed the Commission's initiative to create a European platform and called for enhanced cooperation at Union level to tackle undeclared work, which, according to the resolution, is damaging the Union's economy, leading to unfair competition, endangering the financial sustainability of the Union social models and resulting in an increasing lack of social and employment protection for workers.

Composition of the Platform : the Platform shall be composed of:

a senior representative appointed by each Member State to represent that Member State; a representative of the Commission; a maximum of four representatives of cross-industry social partners at Union level, appointed by those social partners, equally representing both sides of industry.

The Platform should involve the social partners at Union level, both cross-industry and in those sectors that are most severely affected by, or have a particular role in the tackling of, undeclared work, and should cooperate with relevant international organisations , such as the ILO, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development and Union agencies, in particular Eurofound and the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA).

Objectives, mission and activities : the defining purpose of the Platform shall be to provide input with added value at Union level in order to contribute to tackling the complex problem of undeclared work, while fully respecting national competences and procedures. The Platform shall contribute to this objective by:

enhancing cooperation between Member States' relevant authorities and other actors involved in order to tackle more efficiently and effectively undeclared work in its various forms and falsely declared work associated with it, including bogus self-employment; improving the capacity of Member States' different relevant authorities and actors to tackle undeclared work with regard to its cross-border aspects, and in this way contributing to a level playing field; increasing public awareness of issues relating to undeclared work and of the urgent need for appropriate action as well as encouraging Member States to step up their efforts to tackle undeclared work.

To achieve the objectives, the Platform at Union level shall encourage cooperation between Member States through:

exchanging best practices and information ; developing expertise and analysis; encouraging and facilitating innovative approaches to effective and efficient cross-border cooperation and evaluating experiences; contributing to a horizontal understanding of matters relating to undeclared work.

The actions of the Platform could take the form of a framework for joint training, peer reviews, the establishment of tools such as an interactive knowledge bank, guidelines for enforcement, handbooks of good practices, examining the feasibility of a system of rapid information exchange and improving data sharing in compliance with the Union data protection rules. European campaigns or common strategies could increase the awareness of undeclared work, building on policies and strategies to raise awareness of undeclared work which already exist to varying degrees in the Member States.

Financial support : the Platform and its activities should be funded through the PROGRESS axis of the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) within the appropriations set by the European Parliament and the Council.

Review : by 13 March 2020, the Commission shall, after consulting the Platform, submit a report on the application and the added value of this Decision, and shall propose, where appropriate, necessary amendments.

ENTRY INTO FORCE: 12.3.2016.

The European Parliament adopted by 619 votes to 69, with 7 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing a European Platform to enhance cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work.

Parliament’s positon recalled that in its resolution of 14 January 2014 on effective labour inspections as a strategy to improve working conditions in Europe, it welcomed the Commission's initiative to create a European platform and called for enhanced cooperation at Union level to tackle undeclared work, which, according to the resolution, is damaging the Union’s economy, leading to unfair competition, endangering the financial sustainability of the Union social models and resulting in an increasing lack of social and employment protection for workers.

The European Parliament’s position, adopted at first reading of the ordinary legislative procedure, amended the Commission proposal as follows:

Establishment of the Platform : Parliament stated that the main aim of this Directive is to encourage cooperation at Union level between Member States and to successfully tackle the complex problem of undeclared work and its manifold implications and consequences including encouraging and promoting declared work.

The Platform should also deal with falsely declared work and bogus self-employment.

Composition of the Platform : other than a representative of the Commission, the Platform shall be composed of: (i) a senior representative appointed by each Member State to represent that Member State; (ii) a maximum of four representatives of cross-industry social partners at Union level, appointed by those social partners, equally representing both sides of industry.

The following may attend the meetings of the Platform as observers and their contributions shall be taken into due consideration in accordance with its rules of procedure: (a) a maximum of 14 representatives of the social partners in sectors with a high incidence of undeclared work, appointed by those social partners, equally representing both sides of industry; (b) a representative of each third country in the European Economic Area; (c) other observers if necessary.

National measures : the Decision is without prejudice to the competence of Member States to decide on the measures to take at national level to tackle undeclared work. Member States and their relevant authorities remain competent with regard to the identification, analysis and solving of practical problems relating to the enforcement of relevant Union law on working conditions and social protection at work, and for deciding what measures to take at national level to give effect to the outcomes of the activities of the Platform.

Objectives : the defining purpose of the Platform shall be to provide input with added value at Union level in order to contribute to tackling the complex problem of undeclared work, while fully respecting national competences and procedures. It shall contribute to more effective Union and national actions aiming to improve working conditions, promote integration in the labour market and social inclusion, including better enforcement of law within those fields. The aim is to avoid the deterioration of the quality of work and of health and safety at work , by: (i) enhancing cooperation between Member States' relevant authorities and other actors involved; (ii) improving the capacity of Member States' different relevant authorities and actors to tackle undeclared work with regard to its cross-border aspects; (iii) increasing public awareness of issues relating to undeclared work.

Mission : the Platform at Union level shall encourage cooperation between Member States through:

exchanging best practices and information ;

developing expertise and analysis; encouraging and facilitating innovative approaches to effective and efficient cross-border cooperation and evaluating experiences; contributing to a horizontal understanding of matters relating to undeclared work.

Activities : these shall aim, inter alia, to:

improve the knowledge of undeclared work, also with regard to causes and regional differences, by means of shared definitions and common concepts, improve the knowledge and mutual understanding of different systems and practices to tackle undeclared work, including the cross-border aspects thereof; establish tools for efficient sharing of information and experiences; develop tools, such as guidelines for enforcement; facilitate and support different forms of cooperation between Member States by increasing their capacity to tackle cross-border aspects of undeclared work by promoting and facilitating innovative approaches, such as the exchange of staff, use of databases in accordance with applicable national data protection law, and joint activities; examine the feasibility of a system of rapid information exchange; exchange national authorities' experiences in applying Union law that is relevant to tackling undeclared work; exchange experiences and developing best practices with regard to cooperation between the relevant authorities of Member States and, where relevant, third countries; exchange experiences with regard to counselling and information provided to workers affected by practices of undeclared work .

Operation : the Platform shall meet twice a year and be chaired by the representative of the Commission. The Chair shall be assisted by two Co-Chairs chosen from among the senior representatives. The Chair and the Co-Chairs shall constitute the Bureau.

Cooperation : the Platform shall cooperate effectively and shall avoid duplication of work with other relevant expert groups and committees at Union level whose work has a link with undeclared work. It shall also cooperated with international organisations such as the ILO, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and Union agencies, in particular Eurofound and the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA).

Details

The Committee on Employment and Social Affairs adopted the report by Georgi PIRINSKI (S&D, BG) on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing a European Platform to enhance cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work.

The committee recommended that the European Parliament’s position adopted at first reading of the ordinary legislative procedure should amend the Commission proposal as follows:

Establishment of the Platform : a European Platform to enhance the cooperation at Union level in tackling undeclared work should be established.

The term ‘tackling undeclared work’ shall mean the prevention, deterrence and combating of undeclared work as well as encouraging and promoting declared work.

The Platform shall be composed of:

one senior representative (as opposed to a single national contact point) nominated by each Member State, representing national enforcement bodies, and/or other actors involved in the tackling of undeclared work; a maximum of four representatives of cross-industry social partners organised at Union level nominated by the social partners themselves, equally representing both sides of industry.

Members have increased the number of stakeholders who may be actively involved in the meetings of the Platform as observers and their contributions shall be taken into due consideration under the conditions set in its rules of procedure:

a maximum of 14 representatives of social partners in sectors with a high incidence of undeclared work nominated by the social partners themselves, equally representing both sides of industry; a representative of the Committee of Senior Labour Inspectors (SLIC); a representative of the Administrative Commission for the Coordination of Social Security Systems; a representative of the Public Employment Services Network (PES); a representative of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC); a representative of each third-country EEA state.

Objectives of the Platform : the overriding objective of the Platform shall be to provide value-added input at Union level to the efforts of Member States and Union institutions to successfully tackle the complex problem of undeclared work and its manifold implications and consequences including encouraging and promoting declared work.

The Platform shall, to that end, contribute to an improvement in Union and national law , help to achieve the Union's employment targets providing a more effective Union framework for employment and workplace health and safety.

The Platform should also deal with falsely declared work and bogus self-employment.

Missions and tasks : as a follow-up to the European Parliament resolution of 14 January , the European Platform should enhance the exchange of experience and good practices , provide up-to-date, objective, reliable and comparative information, enhance cross-border cooperation and identify and keep a record of letter-box companies and similar operation.

Tasks : the Platform shall thus: (i) encourage and facilitate practical, effective and efficient cross-border operational action; (ii) contribute to a horizontal understanding of matters relating to undeclared work.

In order to execute its mission, the Platform shall in particular carry out the following tasks:

improve the knowledge of all forms of undeclared work, by means of common concepts, including comprehensive definitions of existing and new forms of undeclared work, indicators and methodologies for data collection; improve the knowledge and mutual understanding of different national labour inspection systems and practices to tackle undeclared work; develop guidelines for enforcement; draw up and publish information to facilitate the activities of national labour inspection systems; contribute to the identification of areas related to undeclared work where Union legislation is not achieving its intended objectives; make proposals to the Commission, to the European Parliament and to the Council for inclusion in the country specific recommendations of appropriate action addressing the particular aspects of tackling undeclared work; provide opinions and proposals to the institutions on issues relating to better regulation; encourage active cooperation between the enforcement authorities of Member States and third countries where appropriate, in order to resolve problems related to undeclared work involving those third countries; encourage national authorities and other bodies to provide advice and information to workers who have been victimised by practices of undeclared work.

Operation : the Commission shall coordinate the work of the Platform and the Commission representative to the Platform shall co-chair its meetings. The members of the Platform shall elect from among their number another co-chair of equal standing as well as two substitutes. The Platform shall meet at least twice a year .

Defence of rights : persons bringing cases of undeclared work to the attention of the Platform, either directly or via national enforcement authorities shall be protected against any unfavourable treatment by their employer.

The Council agreed a general approach on a decision establishing a Platform to improve cooperation at EU level in order to prevent and deter undeclared work more effectively. This general approach will be the Council's basis for negotiations with the European Parliament.

The general approach set out in the Annex follows the Commission's proposal on the mandatory participation of all Member States in the Platform and a non-exhaustive list of initiatives the Platform can carry out.

At the same time, the draft Decision ensures that the Member States:

remain competent to decide on their level of involvement in the Platform's initiatives; decide what measures to take at national level to give effect to the outcomes of these initiatives, depending on their own priorities and needs in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work.

The Platform's tasks would include (i) analysing policy measures taken until now; (ii) developing knowledge banks on different measures; (iii) developing tools and handbooks for Member States' cooperation.

The Platform would

allow the Member States to learn from each other and would also give them the tools to join forces, where necessary, in curbing undeclared work; involve the social partners at EU level, both cross-industry and in those sectors more severely affected by undeclared work; cooperate with relevant international organisations such as the International Labour Organisation and EU decentralised agencies, in particular Eurofund and the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work; work on the basis of two-year work programmes, setting out its detailed tasks covering all aspects related to undeclared work such as labour law, labour inspections, health and safety, social security, tax and migration; regularly inform the European Parliament and the Council about its activities.

In the absence of the European Parliament's opinion, the Commission maintains its original proposal . It has also expressed a specific reservation on recital 11a(new) of the Council's general approach as it considers that the effective functioning of the Platform could be at risk, if (too many) Member States' involvement in the Platform's initiatives were low or inexistent. While some delegations share this concern, many other delegations stressed that all Member States are supporting the aims of the Platform.

The Council took note of a progress report on a decision establishing a Platform to improve cooperation at EU level in order to prevent and deter undeclared work more effectively.

Many ministers expressed appreciation for the rapid progress made on this dossier during the Hellenic presidency and regretted that the Council was not in a position to agree a general approach.

They called for the completion of the discussions as soon as possible under the Italian Presidency .

The Platform will aim to facilitate the exchange of best practices and information, provide a framework at EU level to develop expertise and analysis, and promote joint actions between the different national enforcement authorities of Member States.

The proposal envisages the participation of all Member States in the Platform, as this is crucial to address cross-border situations. Each Member State would be invited to nominate a single contact point.

In its progress report, the Council noted the following main elements:

- legal base : while favourably welcoming the text, a number of delegations raised legal questions, including the legal basis as such. At the request of the Working Party, the Council Legal Service (CLS) provided its opinion in writing. In particular, the Working Party has examined the appropriateness of the proposed legal basis (Article 153(2)(a) TFEU) and the different limitations on the legislator in using that Article, including the possibility of Member States' mandatory participation in the proposed Platform .

A consensus could be found that so as to offer a solid legal framework for the Platform (based on Article 153 TFEU) with a certain flexibility within this framework. A large number of delegations supported this text, considering it as a good negotiation position of the Council with the European Parliament.

- other questions debated : the two main issues discussed during the Hellenic Presidency related to the nature of the Member States' participation in the Platform and to the initiatives the Platform could take.

- definition of undeclared work : certain delegations note that there is no Union level definition on undeclared work and that a definition should be included to cover (or not) the question of “falsely declared work”;

- participation in the Platform : a large number of delegations either accept the Commission's proposal of making the participation mandatory or otherwise stress that in any case all Member States should participate. However, one delegation considers that the legal basis, Article 153(2)(a), cannot be used to oblige the Member States to participate in the Platform, and some delegations are still scrutinising this issue;

- initiatives envisaged : the proposal provides the possibility to expand the list of initiatives that the Platform may take. The Presidency's compromise text, however, makes it clear that there is only limited flexibility in adding initiatives to the list included in the Decision and that any new initiative the Platform might undertake would have to be for the execution of its mission as set out in Article 3 and in accordance with the priorities set in the Platform's two-year work programme. To this effect, several delegations consider that the list included in the Decision should be exhaustive. One of these delegations has stressed that the extension of the list should require supervision of the co-legislators. Therefore, Recital 10 states that Member States' participation in certain activities would be on a voluntary basis . The Member States will be able to decide on their participation in any joint cross-border operations and in working parties set up by the Platform.

In general, the Greek Presidency considers that its latest compromise text strikes the correct balance between, on the one hand, setting out clearly the Platform's mission and its initiatives and, on the other, giving the Platform the necessary flexibility in the implementation of that mission. The Presidency recommends finally that the forthcoming discussions on the file under the Italian Presidency should be based on this latest compromise text in order to reach a general approach in due time to serve as the Council's mandate during the first reading negotiations with the European Parliament .

PURPOSE: to establish a Platform to enhance EU cooperation in the prevention of undeclared work.

PROPOSED ACT: Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

BACKGROUND: the draft decision notes that undeclared work has serious budgetary implications through decreased tax and social security revenues. It has negative impacts on employment, productivity and working conditions, skills development and life-long learning. It results in lower pension rights and less access to health care and causes unfair competition between undertakings. A closely related phenomenon is falsely declared work, or bogus self-employment, which also has negative consequences in terms of health and safety and social security coverage of the workers concerned.

The European Parliament in its resolution of 14 January 2014 called for stronger cooperation and reinforcement of labour inspectorates to fight undeclared work.

The main responsibility for tackling undeclared work lies with Member States and relies mostly on three types of enforcement bodies: labour inspectorates, social security inspectorates fighting fraud on social insurance contributions, and tax authorities. In some Member States, social partners, customs authorities, migration bodies, the police and the public prosecutor's office are involved. It has, however, been noticed that, in some cases, cooperation between these different bodies at national level is not as structured or effective as necessary.

As the challenges are common to Member States , and as undeclared work often has a cross-border dimension, EU level action can play an important role by reinforcing cooperation between enforcement authorities within and between different Member States in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work. At the moment, there is no formal mechanism in place for all relevant authorities from Member States to address issues related to cross-border aspects of undeclared work.

The Communication of 2012 "Towards a job-rich recovery" highlighted the need for improved cooperation among Member States and announced the launch of consultations on setting up an EU-level platform between labour inspectorates and other enforcement bodies to combat undeclared work, aimed at improving cooperation, sharing best practices and identifying common principles for inspections.

IMPACT ASSESSMENT: this included several options for enhancing EU cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work, and concluded that the preferred option would be the establishment of a European Platform with mandatory membership .

LEGAL BASIS: Article 153(2)(a) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

CONTENT: the draft decision establishes a Platform to enhance EU cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work, composed of national enforcement authorities as nominated by all the Member States and the Commission.

Observers: representatives of the social partners at cross-industry level, as well as from sectors with high incidence of undeclared work may attend meetings of the Platform as observers. Other observers include Eurofound, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work and the ILO.

Objectives : the Platform will contribute to better enforcement of EU and national law, to the reduction of undeclared work and the emergence of formal jobs, by:

improving cooperation between Member States' different enforcement authorities at EU level to prevent and deter undeclared work, including bogus self-employment, more efficiently and effectively ; improving Member States' different enforcement authorities' technical capacity to tackle cross-border aspects of undeclared work, increasing public awareness on the urgency of action and encouraging Member States to step up their efforts in dealing with undeclared work.

To achieve these objectives, the Platform will: (i) exchange best practices and information, (ii) develop expertise and analysis, (iii) coordinate cross-border operational actions.

Tasks: the draft decision sets out a list of tasks that the Platform should carry out for the execution of its mission. These include :

establishing a knowledge bank of different practices/measures, including bilateral agreements used in Member States to deter undeclared work ; adopting non-binding guidelines for inspectors, handbooks of good practice and common principles of inspections ; developing permanent training capacity for enforcement authorities and adopting a common framework for carrying out joint trainings ; and organising peer reviews to follow Member States progress, including support for the implementation of country-specific recommendations.

Single Pint of Contact : to achieve its objectives, the Platform will be supported by a 'Single point of contact' in each Member State who should have the necessary authority to liaise with national authorities dealing with the multifaceted aspects of undeclared work.

Operation : the Commission will coordinate the work of the Platform and chair its meetings.

The Platform shall adopt by majority decision, the rules of procedure, a two-year work programme, and the establishment of working groups to examine issues specified in work Programmes.

Review: four years after its entry into force, the Commission must submit a report on the application of the decision and assess to what extent the Platform has contributed to the achievement of its objectives.

BUDGETARY IMPLICATIONS: Regulation (EU) No 1296/2013 establishes an EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation ("EaSI") for the period 2014-2020. Funding for the Platform will come from the PROGRESS axis. An indicative amount of 2.1 million EUR per year is provided for carrying out the tasks, such as the establishment of practical tools, support by service providers, publishing of common guidelines and principles, and handbooks, developing a permanent training capacity and a common framework for carrying out joint trainings, organising peer reviews and European Campaigns. In addition, grants to finance projects supporting the achievement of the objectives of the Platform will be covered. Up to 224 000 EUR per year will be used to reimburse the costs related to participation in the Platform meetings.

It is also recalled that the European Social Fund (ESF) supports Member States' efforts to improve the quality of public administration. Financing is envisaged within the Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020.

The legislative proposal is budget-neutral and does not require additional staff resources.
