Comparative study on the legal aspects of the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services in the European Union

Study financed and prepared for the use of the European Commission, DG Employment, under the services contract VT/2009/0541


This comparative study is based on 12 national studies which examined the questions and difficulties that arise in the practical application of the posting of workers legislation, as well as its enforcement in practice. The study investigates not only the role of Member States authorities (primarily labour inspectorates) in adequately enforcing the Directive, but also the relevant activities of social partners. To this end, the national rapporteurs have conducted structured interviews, and studied legislation and case law. The national rapporteurs were aided in this process with a detailed questionnaire, composed by the lead researchers in close cooperation with the European Commission and the rapporteurs themselves.
