New Project: Start of Posting of Workers in Eastern Europe



The new Posting of Workers in Eastern Europe project addresses the issue of posting of workers within the European Union at its pre-accession stage by assisting Eastern European countries, especially the four candidate countries Albania, FYROM, Montenegro, and Serbia, in implementing the Directive prior to its adoption, and by assisting in the prevention of social dumping, i.e. the use of cheap labour, to minimise associated risks for workers. It aims to do so through research, peer reviews and workshops involving stakeholders from the candidate countries and 4 EU member states, namely Austria, Germany, Italy, and Slovenia. The project will run from January 2018 to December 2019 and is implemented by a consortium of eight partners led by the European Centre.
