The FPC, ECUK and TUC’s ‘Single Market, Equal Rights?’ conference will be a high profile half-day event that will bring together a range of different British perspectives on the EU’s role in employment and social law. The conference will look at the current state of the debate in Brussels on employment and social rights, take the political temperature in the UK around the issue and set out the benefits and challenges for workers, businesses and the country. It will examine:
The UK-specific dimensions of the debate both in terms of the party politics and the impact it has on the wider relationship between Britain and the EU
The extent of EU involvement in employment and social protection compared to national action
The relationship between the single market and EU employment and social law
The balance between the role of the European Commission and the European Court of Justice
The Posted Workers, Working Time and Agency Workers directives and other contentious issues
The conference is free to attend and open to all, though places are limited and will be allocated on a first come-first served basis. If you would like to attend, please RSVP as soon as possible to:
