Labour laws all over Europe follow the European legislation decided in Brussels, but national laws and regulations are also important. Adina Florea is a journalist and has covered migration from Asia into Romania, as well migration of Romanians toward Western Europe. She has met many workers and researched the labour conditions they work in. Alina Lippegaus is a lawyer with the German workers' support organisation, Fair Labour, which offers advice to migrants coming into Germany, and deals with legal issues they face. Paula Soler follows the developments in the labour market from the EU angle, and the topics discussed among the EU lawmakers. The three panelists will share their expertise, and together they will paint a broader picture. How is the European labour market regulated, and labour regulation implemented? What are the current gaps and shortcomings of labour legislation? And how can we investigate them? Together we will unravel the European jargon, and look into structural issues in order to better understand the underlying labour issues across Europe.
