Update imple­ment­a­tion reform of the Post­ing of Work­ers Dir­ect­ive and pro­pos­al EU min­im­um wages


As of 30 July 2020, pos­ted work­ers are entitled, among oth­ers, to equal pay for equal work in the host coun­try. EU Mem­ber States have had more than two years to imple­ment the Revi­sion of the Post­ing of Work­ers Dir­ect­ive (2018/957/EU), includ­ing the “equal pay for equal work” rules.

In this Law Alert we provide a prac­tic­al over­view of the most import­ant changes as a res­ult of the Reform Dir­ect­ive, as well as a trans­pos­i­tion status update. It is clear that the Reform Dir­ect­ive will likely have a sig­ni­fic­ant impact on the exist­ing glob­al mobil­ity prac­tice.

Fur­ther­more, on 28 Octo­ber 2020 the European Com­mis­sion pub­lished a dir­ect­ive pro­pos­al for EU min­im­um wages for employ­ees and bogus self-employed per­sons.
