During an event on 27 February 2018 in Brussels, organized by The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, a first study on the scope of a European Labour Authority was presented and discussed.

Author Jan Cremers, senior researcher at Tilburg University, made an analysis of the shortcomings of national labour inspections in abusive cross-border employment situations. His study offers insight in existing competences e.g. at ILO level as well as in other policy areas and makes proposals for a possible mandate and tasks of a future ELA.
