Information on parliamentary scrutiny

Passed on to the Committee on Labour, Family, Social Policy and Disability. The document has been discussed at its 18th extraordinary meeting of 1 October 2013.

And at it's 74th meeting of 4 October 2013 the Committee on EU Affairs of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the following Position:

The Republic of Slovenia has reservations as regards the adoption of the proposed Directive. It underlines the issues relating to its standpoint regarding the already existing legislation on non-discrimination and the fact that it relies on a single legal basis, covering the area of employment. In the discussion, Slovenia will advocate the position that it would be wiser to ensure a more appropriate approach in terms of tackling the issues of guaranteeing the rights of migrant workers by enhancing the implementation of the already existing legal instruments, and that in this respect it would be better to adopt recommendations than a directive.

However, in the light of a compromise, Slovenia will support the solutions in the course of negotiations, since it is aware that while ensuring the free movement of persons and all the respective rights therein, the category of migrant workers and their family members may also, by reason of crisis, be discriminated against due to the fact that they are migrants. Therefore, Slovenia, aiming to find a suitable solution, proposes that the Directive focuses on the commitment of implementing the tasks and the level of accessibility to information regarding regulations and general formulations therein, whereas it should leave the decisions concerning the manner in which the tasks will be implemented to the discretion of the Member States which can best assess how to improve the efficiency of individual instruments.
