Chapter 19: Social Policy and Employment
The acquis in the social field aims at increasing employment, improving working and living conditions, establishing social protection mechanism at appropriate standards, promoting dialogue with social partners, developing human resources in order to ensure sustainable employment, combating poverty and social exclusion and providing equal opportunities for men and women.
Given the above, the acquis includes minimum standards in the areas of labour law, equality, health and safety at work, and anti-discrimination. The European Social Fund is the main financial tool through which the EU supports the implementation of its employment strategy and contributes to social inclusion efforts.
