Posting of workers

Free movement of workers and the freedom to provide services are fundamental to the provision of transnational services in the EU Single Market.

ZDH currently experiences an increase in complaints from Skilled Crafts companies, especially those operating in border regions. They are finding themselves increasingly affected by the often disproportional and non-transparent national provisions for employing posted workers in neighbouring EU Member States.

Coming into force on 30 July 2018, the Directive (EU) 2018/957 has fundamentally changed and extended the posting of workers directive. Member States are required to transpose the new provisions into national legislation by 30 July 2020.
