We have discussed the reform of the Posting of Workers Directive 2018/957/EU (the “Reform Directive”) several times in earlier Posting of Workers alerts. This directive was adopted by the European Parliament on 29 May 2018, and is a revision of the existing Posting of Workers Directive of 1996, raising the material protection level for posted workers.
The Reform Directive must be transposed into national law by national legislators ultimately by 30 July 2020. The implementation of the Reform Directive will have major consequences for the rules regarding transnational posting of employees.
In this Law Alert we provide an update on the progress with regard to implementation in the respective EU/EEA Member States.
