EU employment situation and social outlook – Monthly Monitor – September

The EU labour market is continuing to stabilise following several months of only relatively moderate deterioration and is now showing the first signs of recovery – according to the latest Monthly Labour Market Monitor by the European Commission.For the first time in nearly two years, employment remained unchanged in the second quarter, while unemployment has been falling since May.Overall, the EU labour market may perform somewhat better this year than previously expected, driven by a faster than envisaged economic recovery, although conditions are still set to remain weak for some time. This month´s edition also takes a closer look at the labour market situations in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden and the latest social situation trends
