What is Posting of workers?

Any foreign employer wishing to provide working services in another country must comply with the hosting country’s social laws, which means that remuneration and working conditions (work times, break times…) must be applied to the posted workers. In case of failing to comply with these obligations, foreign companies may be considered to infringe the country’s rules and be subject to fines. 

The posting of an employee occurs when the employee carries out his work outside the national territory” for an employer established outside the territory where the work is performed. 

The foreign employer has a number of obligations with which it must comply before its employee’s assignment, in particular in regard to immigration, labour law and social security.
