Natural persons, nationals of Member States of the Council of Europe and other persons lawfully residing in those countries have the right: to work, to adequate and safe working conditions, to decent wages, to counseling and vocational training, to equal opportunities and equal treatment in employment and occupation without discrimination based on sex, to protection in the event of termination of employment by the employer, to the protection of their claims in the event of employer insolvency, to the protection of dignity whilst at work, to associate in trade unions (employees) or employers' organizations (employers), to negotiate collective bargaining agreements, to participate in collective legal actions, to participate in the decisionmaking process by employers in matters relating to the workplace and the employees, to health care, to social security, and to social and medical care. Children, minors, pregnant workers, and those in their period of maternity, as well as people with disabilities benefit from special, enhanced legal protection that allows them to combine the duties of life and work.
