Purpose of the posting regulations (posting of workers directive 96/71 / EC)


"Same work - in the same place - at the same wage"

The main objective of the EU-notification regulations for deployment within the EU is to be compliant on the minimum standards of the target destination with regard to the following topics:

  •     minimum wage
  •     working hours
  •     leave;
  •     safety, health and hygiene at the workplace as well as
  •     conditions for temporary employment


Scope of the notification and sanctions

The different national regulations as well as the ongoing changes lead to an administrative effort:

  •     the EU-notification
  •     the representative's in the target destination
  •     the documentation

Depending on national regulations, business travel must be reported in advance from the first day of travel and comprehensive documents (including employment contract, pay slips and bank account prove, health certificate) must be provided.

Disrespect of the posting regulations lead to significant sanctions and far-reaching consequences:

  •     sanction payments
  •     legal penalties
  •     entry bans
  •     claims for compensation of employees for disrespect of duty of care obligations
  •     exclusion from the local market
