The free movement of workers in the European Union: Directive 96/71/EC on the posting of workers within the framework of the provision of services: its implementation, practical application and operation

Jan Cremers, Peter Donders

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientific

Abstract

The introduction of the principles of free movement in the EU has had an effect on all industries. Previous research by the European Commission states that mobility across borders is low on the European labour market, but, if it happens, then in management positions in different industries and on construction sites. This book analyses the national implementation of the EU Posting of Workers Directive (in 10 countries). The study contains joint conclusions and recommendations, drawn up by the European social partners in construction. The study has influenced the political debates in various EU member states about the Services Directive and the further transposition into national law of the country of employment principles.
