Expert contribution to a final conference. According to the author, monitoring the process of posting and controlling the regular character of the cross-border provision of services with posted workers has proven to be a problematic area. Recent joint activities of the labour inspectorate have confirmed the problems with compliance, the lack of cooperation notably in this area, the difficulties to trace circumvention in cross-border situations and the weakness of the existing sanctioning mechanism. One of the additional joint frustrations for the competent institutions, and in fact for all stakeholders, is the difficulty to bring cases of breaches to a righteous end. This imposes obligations to the (national and European) legislator. Implementation that is poor makes legislation a paper tiger, legislation that is powerless is worse than no legislation.
