Progress on Enforcement Directive on posted workers

News   •   Nov 24, 2016 14:53 GMT

In 2014, the EU adopted a new Enforcement Directive (Directive 2014/67/EU) to address concerns surrounding regulations regarding the posting of workers in Europe. Member States had two years until the deadline of 18 June 2016 to transpose and adapt their national regulations. A recently published topical update from Eurofound’s Observatory of Working Life (EurWORK ) considers the progress made by Member States. Half – mostly countries from the former EU15 – had almost finalised the transposition process by the deadline. Nine countries have discussed a draft transposition regulation, but have no dates for adopting and/or enforcing it. However, three southern countries – Greece, Portugal and Spain – do not seem to have started discussing or even drafting specific regulations for transposing the Directive.
