Our vision

“If one were not to accept some restrictions on the freedom to provide services, there would be none at all”. From the employer’s perspective, posting of workers is mainly concerned with “restrictions”. We believe that understanding restrictions is a prerequisite to understanding and realising compliance with the rules that govern the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services.

Our aim

Our aim is assisting you, in understanding and realising compliance with the rules that govern the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services. We aim to make the difference, there where knowledge supported by technology can make the difference.

Our goal

We assist employers posting workers in complying and monitoring compliance with administrative requirements and terms and conditions of employment laid down by law, regulation or administrative provisions, and/or by collective agreements in the Member State where the work is carried out.

A “posted worker” means a worker who, for a limited period, carries out his work in the territory of a Member State other than the State in which he normally works.

A prima facie simple definition of a concept had given rise to over thirty years of judicial and academic debate.

Directive 96/71/EC as amended by Directive 2018/957/EU and its enforcing Directive 2014/67/EU aim to strike “the right balance between the need to promote the freedom to provide services and ensure a level playing field on the one hand and the need to protect the rights of posted workers on the other”.

Protection of workers is about terms and conditions of employment must be granted to such workers in the Member State in which territory the work is carried out. Keep up to date with the latest news and with our articles and practice notices on EU law and ECJ case-law, national law and jurisprudence in the area of “posting of workers”.
