Policy Areas

Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion

The Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (DG EMPL) - under Commissioner Marianne Thyssen - addresses challenges linked to globalisation, the ageing of Europe's population and changing social realities. All employment legislation, where the EU has competences, such as working hours, conditions or corporate governance issues are dealt with by this DG.

At the European Parliament, the Committee for Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL) chaired by MEP Thomas Händel, is responsible for this area.
