A BDO Legal Guide to the revised posted workers directive

27 July 2020

Original content provided by BDO Belgium

Directive (EU) 2018/957, amending Directive 96/71/EC, applies to companies that send employees of any nationality to EU-member states within the context of cross-border service provision, for example, business travellers or seconded workers. The Directive stipulates that EU member states must ensure that employees who are temporarily posted in another member state are treated equally to employees from the host country, in terms of employment benefits. 

The revised Posted Workers Directive must be transposed into national laws by 30th July 2020, meaning all EU member states need to have adapted their national legislation to the Directive by this date. This whitepaper brings together an overview of the local regulatory situation in some key European jurisdictions, as of July 2020.
