The Posting of Workers Directive – Proposed Changes


The European Commission has recently published a proposed revision of the rules on the posting of workers which aims to revise Directive 96/71 (“Posting of Workers Directive”).

It will include changes in three main areas:

(a) remuneration of posted workers, including in situations of subcontracting,

(b) rules on temporary agency workers, and

(c) long-term posting.

The proposals include addressing unfair practices and promoting the principle that the same work at the same place should be remunerated in the same manner.

A copy of the full press release is available to view here.
