New website

Dear EELA member,

Welcome to our new website! We have added new functionalities to make it easier for you to navigate, especially on mobile devices. Please take a look at the News section, which now includes more employment law related updates and alerts, thanks to our recent partnership with the Planet Labor press agency. Subjects cover recent developments at EU level (projects of the EU Commission, EU legislation and key EUCJ decisions), national reforms and noteworthy employment relations initiatives in Europe and worldwide. You will also receive these alerts via email as part of your membership. This new partnership replaces the one with the EELC magazine to which you can now subscribe independently. We also encourage you to share your own knowledge by posting your contributions, which will appear in the News section as well.

As we want this new web site experience to be as interactive as possible, please feel free to provide us with your comments. They are important for us to understand your needs and expectations.
