This study was commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Economic and Scientific Policy, upon request of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs. It provides an overview of the Posting of Workers Directive, focusing on the current situation and major patterns regarding the posting of workers in the EU. Attention is also paid to major problems and challenges and how these have been addressed by political and jurisdictive debates as well as by proposals to improve the regulatory framework of posting. In light of the Commission proposal (published on 8 March 2016) to revise the Directive, the study aims to provide the EMPL Committee with an assessment of the proposal, having taken into account both the key challenges addressed, and the previous resolutions and requests made by the European Parliament.
