Posting of Third Country Nationals

The final comparative study of the Con3Post project has been published by our partner ZRC SAZU. The study compares the findings from three Con3Post regional reports on mobility and posting flows between EU-sending, EU-receiving and third countries, namely Slovenia, Austria and Bosnia and Herzegovina; Italy, Belgium, Tunisia and Morocco; and Poland, Finland, Estonia and Ukraine. The study explores the main characteristics of the trend of posting of third country nationals (TCN) to work in the EU construction sector and focuses in particular on i) the labour market dynamics, ii) migration and mobility trends, iii) labour rights, occupational safety and health, iv) vulnerabilities of TCN posted workers, and v) management of transnational workplaces.
