Planet Labor, 8 April 2015, n°9008 -

This non-binding recommendation bears witness to the willingness of the Council’s 47 Member States to progress together towards a common goal. It outlines the main principles that the governments should pass through their own national legislation as relates to the treatment of personal data for both employees and job applicants.
