While a new Enforcement Directive on posting workers in the European Union should be voted by the European Parliament during the April plenary session, Kristina Maslauskaite gives a complete picture of this phenomenon in Europa.

The first section of the Policy Paper provides the background information and the state of play of posting today, recalling the arguments for and against posting and providing facts and figures.

The second section presents the legal framework that has been governing posting since the adoption of the Posted Workers Directive in 1996.

Finally, the third section analyses the weaknesses of the current framework and the new proposals enshrined in the Enforcement Directive.
