Study on the compliance of national transposition measures of Directive (EU) 2019/1152 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 June 2019 on transparent and predictable working conditions in the European Union

Directive (EU) 2019/11521 of 20 June 2019 aims to improve working conditions in the EU by promoting more transparent and predictable employment while ensuring labour market adaptability. It introduces minimum rights that every worker in the EU must have and updates the information to be provided to workers about their working conditions. The initial information requirements were set out in Directive 91/533/EEC of 14 October 1991, which is repealed by Directive (EU) 2019/1152 from 1 August 2022.

The objective of this study is to assist the Commission in the assessment of the national measures transposing Directive (EU) 2019/1152 into national law, as described under the previous section.

The research team will carry out a thorough analysis of the Member States' transposition of the Directive into their national legal frameworks. The data analysed at legal and technical level, and the conclusions drawn by the experts, will provide the Commission with the necessary information to decide if the Member States' transposition of the Directive is in compliance with the Court’s requirements in terms of the completeness of the notification resulting from Case C-543/17 Commission v Belgium, as well as on the adequacy/correctness of the transposition in each case.
