Seasonal workers in the EU in times of COVID-19: factsheet published by the Commission
In the context of the COVID-19 outbreak, factsheet with practical examples and best practices related to proper application of the existing rules on seasonal work in the EU has been published by the European Commission.
The publication outlines the rights of seasonal workers and the difference in terms of rights between seasonal workers from EU and non-EU countries. Practical examples of various situations have been described as well as good practices observed in Member States and at EU level.
The working and living conditions have been also addressed with a reference to EU-OSHA and the Online interactive Risk Assessment tool (OiRA) that helps micro and small organisations to put in place a step-by-step risk assessment process.
