Europe is often accused to foster unemployment through the posted-workers system.

A posted-worker is defined as “a worker who, for a limited period, works in a Member State other than the one in which he normally works”. Today in Europe

(1) the remuneration of posted workers happens according with the principle of “equal work, equal pay”;

(2) posted workers benefit from the same conditions as a local worker and the long-term detachment (limited to 12 months).

This revision should allow a better control of the posted-workers rights respect and should foster the fight against frauds and against social dumping.
