Posting of workers

Project Presentation

The "Posting of workers" Directive (96/71/EC) is one of the cornerstones of European legislation affecting the construction industry, one of the characteristics of which is a high level of workforce mobility.

The EU sectoral social partners for the construction industry, FIEC and the EFBWW (European Federation of Building and Wood Workers), therefore decided to develop a joint website, which was launched in October 2009.

The slogan for this website is "Know your rights and obligations".

The website presents, in a clear and user friendly manner, information on the applicable working conditions in the construction industry (minimum wages, working time, health and safety, etc.) in the various Member States of the European Union. In other words, an enterprise or a worker intending to work on a temporary basis in another Member State will be able to find all the relevant information (available in English and in most cases also in the national languages) on this website at the click of a button.
