Comments are closed. The European Commission (EC) has called on European Union (EU) member countries– including the UK – to adopt an updated and common EU list of illnesses forwhich workers should be compensated if they contract them at work. In a formal ‘recommendation on the schedule of occupational diseases’,Brussels calls on governments “to introduce as soon as possible”rules covering “compensation and preventative measures” for suchmedical conditions. It has also published a second list of illnesses, which are not alwaysdirectly linked to workplace health problems, and has asked member states tointroduce rules demanding compensation for workers where a condition “canbe proved to be occupational in origin and nature”. As the commission’s proposals are in the form of a recommendation, they cannotbecome mandatory as if written into an EU directive or regulation.
