Read the letter bellow.
The Posting of Workers Directive (Directive 96/71/EC) covers employees being sent to another Member State in three situations:
1. When an employer posts a worker to another Member States on his own account and under his direction, under a contract which the employer has concluded with the party in the State for whom the services are intended;
2. When an employer posts a worker to an establishment or to an undertaking owned by the group in the territory of a Member State;
3. When the employer, being a temporary employment undertaking or placement agency, hires out a worker to a user undertaking established or operating in another Member States.
The employment relationship between the employer and the posted worker must be maintained during the period of posting. Read details.
