by European Commission.

Publisher: Strasbourg European Commission 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The European Union has agreed on an employment rate target for women and men of 75% for the 20-64 years age group by 2020: an ambitious commitment to the sustainability of Europe's social model, welfare systems, economic growth and public finances. Bridging the gap to the target will be no easy task. The crisis has brought the employment rate down to 69%, and the unemployment rate up to 10%; assuming the labour market stabilises in 2010-2011, achieving an employment rate of 75% by 2020 will require an average employment growth slightly above 1% per annum. With declining fertility rates, the EU working age population (15-64) will start shrinking as early as 2012; even with continuing immigrant flows. A skilled workforce is an essential asset to develop a competitive, sustainable and innovative economy in line with Europe 2020 goals. In times of budgetary constraints and unprecedented global competitive pressures, EU employment and skills policies that help shape the transition to a green, smart and innovative economy must be a matter of priorityAvailability: (1)

This paper examines the literature regarding disadvantaged job seekers and barriers to employment in areas such as poor health and physical disability, mental health, domestic violence, substance abuse and lack of social support. It then looks at the policy context and program approaches in Australia, the United States and the European Union. Common elements of good practice are highlighted and implications for PSP in Australia are identified.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
