Posted Workers Guide

27 July 2020

The European directive on posted workers of 28th June 2019, transposed into French legislation by an order of 20th February 2019, comes into force on 30th July 2020.

BDO has prepared this easy-reference guide on the consequences of the revised Posted Workers Directive (PWD) for employers, focussing on the specific impact in a number key European jurisdictions. It is definitely worthwhile sharing with your external and internal stakeholders, on your website, on your social channels and on your intranet.

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.
