Liaison Forum at DG EMPL - Information session on the proposals concerning the posting of workers’ directive and Monti II regulation

In the framework of the Liaison Forum, the DG EMPL invited representatives of the EU cross-industry and sectoral social partners to discuss the two legislative proposals published by the Commission on 21 March to increase the protection of workers temporarily posted abroad (see in this regard the Secretariat note of 12th April 2012).

The overall objective of both proposals is to strengthen the social dimension of the internal market and restore confidence among stakeholders as well as to clarify that economic freedoms and fundamental social rights are at equal footing within the Single Market. The Commission’s presentation was given by Sjoerd Feenstra and Florian Schierle from DG EMPL (Unit B.2, Labour Law) and was followed by a debate between participants.
