News - New Project: Bridging the gap between legislation and practice in the posting of workers

The central goals of new two-year project Bridging the gap between legislation and practice in the posting of workers (POW-Bridge) are to study possible gaps between procedures (legal basis) and practices (experiences) in the rules governing the posting of workers, to identify challenges and to develop and share effective solutions for posting companies and agencies tasked with enforcing posting legislation. Thereby, a particular focus is on the possible challenges resulting from interactions between the revised posting Directive passed in 2018 and other EU and national legislation.

The strategic objectives include: to promote and enhance effective and transparent application of EU rules on posting; to promote a more active participation of employers in the process of evidence-based policy-making; and to establish, consolidate and expand multi-stakeholder cross-border collaboration among EU Member States and candidate countries.

The project funded by the EaSI Progress programme is going to develop research, cooperation and dissemination activities in eight countries: six EU Member States (Austria, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia) and two candidate countries (North Macedonia, Serbia). European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research is the Lead Partner and collaborates with Center for Social Policy and five other international partners for the implementation of this project.
