EU Sources - Employment report 2017 - March 31, 2017

The EPSCO Council adopted the 2017 Joint Employment Report (JER). The Joint Employment Report takes a snapshot of the employment and social situation across the EU, and highlights the extent of reforms carried out in the Member States over 2016. The Scoreboard allows for the early detection of key employment and social problems and for the assessment of convergence or divergence patterns across countries. Five Member States (Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Spain and Italy) face a number of critical employment and social challenges, even though Cyprus, Portugal and Spain have seen significant improvements in recent years. Five other Member States (Bulgaria, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania) are flagged more than once for having ‘critical situations’, with varying degrees of severity in terms of their challenges. Some Member States (Austria, Slovakia, Finland, Estonia, France, Belgium, Ireland and Poland) face more specific challenges, usually in only one of the considered employment or social domains.
