Posting of Workers in the EU


The rules on posting of workers within the EU have been amended and supplemented over the past few years. In 2016, the implementation of the Enforcement Directive in Dutch legislation resulted in a clarification of the definition of posting and the responsibilities of the authorities to verify compliance with the Posting of Workers Directive.

The Revision of the Posting of Workers Directive, set for implementation in 2020, will develop the rules on posting of workers even further, aiming for a more equal position of posted workers in relation to the workers in the host country.  This alert gives you an update on the registration obligation in the Netherlands under the Enforcement Directive and the amendments to the Revision of the Posting of Workers Directive of 18 June 2018.
