[full-text, 28 pages]

 

[excerpt from summary]

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, health

and safety at work as well as conditions for part time, full time and temporary agency

workers1

.

To further explore Europeans' actual experiences of working conditions 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, work breaks and flexibility at work,

 Information and consultation at the workplace, and

 Health and safety at work, including the experience of work-related health problems or accidents.
