Social partner 2011 consultation SE Directive

The ETUC and BUSINESSEUROPE have both sent in their responses to the social partner consultation on the possible review of the SE Directive.

The European Commission opened this consultation in July 2011. In the consultation document and a cover letter the Commission listed ‘three problematic areas’ concerning the rules on employee involvement contained in the Directive: (a) the complexity of the procedure for employee involvement; (b) the lack of legal certainty concerning certain aspects of the negotiation procedure; and (c) the concern that the use of the SE form could affect the rights to employee involvement granted by national or EU law. In the documents the European Commission raised four questions related to these areas.
