Social law – Exercise 1

Page: 98 Chapter: Part 3, A. IV. 1.

Suggested solution:

The EEC from the very beginning contained a title on social policy, though this title was rather weak at the time (only one substantive provision – on equal pay, which had been put in the Treaty for economic reasons – but with no legal basis provisions). Further, the Treaty envisaged coordinating secondary law in the field of social security. Early on, the EEC adopted additional social law, in particular in the field of the free movement of persons, on issues such as social security law, the right of workers to bring family members to the host Member State and to remain in the Member State after the termination of their economic activity. Later, social elements were further developed in secondary law concerning other fields, such as company law.
