Consultation on the future European Working Conditions Survey

FRA took part in Eurofound’s virtual consultation on the next European Working Conditions Survey (2024 edition).

Eurofound consulted selected national experts and EU Agencies concerning the draft contents of the survey.

To collect trend data, most questions in the survey would need to remain unchanged compared with previous survey editions. However, the new survey can also include additional questions related to emerging data needs. These could cover the increasing use of teleworking - which can result in benefits and drawbacks for the employees – as well as the increase in platform work and use of technology to manage employees’ tasks and monitor their performance. These can lead to data protection and privacy concerns.

The consultation took place on 15 March.
