What is a posting?
Posting, in the context of European legislation, refers to the act of sending an employee to work temporarily abroad.
As such, it is often associated with social dumping. As a measure against dumping, the ‘equal pay for equal work’ principle is enforced across the EU. Employers must ensure that posted employees adhere to the terms of employment of the host state (these include rules on remuneration, holiday length, daily and weekly rests, overtime pay, allowances, gender equality, non-discrimination, etc.)
Posting employers therefore need to comply with the unfamiliar rules of the host state. Those rules are set out in a large variety of legal sources (e.g. primary laws, secondary legislation, collective bargaining agreements, arbitral awards, etc.), often in a foreign language. Furthermore, they change dynamically.
This means that significant resources are required to ensure that postings are legally compliant. If employers fail to comply with such regulations, however, they might face huge sanctions.
