The Employment and Social Affairs Committee has unanimously adopted a set of measures against long-term work absence. They believe the European Commission and Member States should work on in order to retain and reintegrate workers into the workplace who suffer from various chronic conditions or injuries and foster active ageing.

Members of the European Parliament have stressed that reintegrating workers into quality employment, as well as enabling them to stay active until retirement age and beyond if they so wish, is beneficial for their psychosocial wellbeing, and helps to retain skills that would otherwise be lost.

The plenary vote is expected to take place during the following sessions in July or September.
