Milieu mapped national measures in the field of access to employment and social security offered to displaced persons from Ukraine

With the refugee crisis from Ukraine being high on the EU agenda, Milieu has been involved in several projects that support EU institutions in their efforts to manage a massive influx of displaced persons from Ukraine. A recently finished project for the European Labour Authority (ELA) has focused on the EU and EFTA Member States’ response to the Ukrainian crisis with regard to employment and social security/welfare.

Joining forces with Eftheia, Milieu provided an EU-level legal assessment and a country-level synthetic overview of the legal framework and other public support instruments adopted at Member State level aimed at implementing the Temporary Protection Directive (Directive 2001/55/EC). As displaced persons benefiting from temporary protection enjoy free access to the labour market, the project focused on their rights with regard to employment and social security/welfare as well as an on overview of any other national measures having a potential impact on EU labour mobility. Individual country fiches are published on dedicated ELA’s website.
