Posting of workers - what future for the free movement of services?
In March 2016, the European Commission presented its proposal for a Directive amending Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services.
Since then the proposal has been subject to heated discussions in the Council and also triggered a yellow card from the Parliaments of 11 Member States.
With a view to the upcoming negotiations on the proposal in the European Parliament, this ALDE event will discuss the contents of the proposal and its implications on the free movement of services. Legal aspects as well as the views from employer and employee organisations will be put forward in order to enable a genuine discussion.
