posted worker and legislation

posted worker, definition

The European directive on the posting of workers ( 1996 ) defines the posted worker as " any worker who, for a limited period of time, performs his job in the territory of a Member State other than the State in whose territory he habitually works ".
________________________________________________
The text provides several scenarios of "transnational" work :

  • Provision of services : industrial, commercial, artisanal, liberal or agricultural activity.
  • Intragroup Mobility : provision of personnel between companies of the same group for a mission or training
  • Providing interim : a temporary employment company can second employees to a company in France for one-off assignments
  • Operation for his own account (self-service): a company established abroad , can temporarily detach its employees in France for one-off missions
  • land-based transport activities are affected by the posting rules . However, some specific measures are applied to this sector (attestation mandatory detachment).
