Recommendation adopted by the European Commission on 4 March 2021, outlining an approach to transition between emergency measures taken to preserve jobs during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and new measures required in its aftermath.
Effective Active Support to Employment (EASE) comprises guidance to Member States on active labour market policies and indicates how countries could use EU funds to support EASE policies. Member States are invited to develop coherent policy packages, combining temporary and permanent measures, to address the labour market challenges triggered by the pandemic, bridge the skill shortages that may hold up economic growth during the economic recovery, and help individuals to successfully navigate the green and digital transitions. These policy packages should comprise three components: (1) hiring incentives and entrepreneurial support, (2) upskilling and reskilling opportunities, and (3) enhanced support by employment services.
This Recommendation was published alongside the publication of the European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan on 4 March 2021. It was published in the Official Journal on 8 March 2021.
