Background and further information:

Under this Directive, Member States are required to designate one or more bodies to promote equal treatment and provide support and assistance to mobile EU workers with the enforcement of their rights. The Directive also obliges Member States to ensure access to effective legal protection in case these rights are breached and to promote active dialogue between social partners, NGO's and public authorities with a view to encouraging the principle of equal treatment.

The Commission addressed a letter of formal notice to both Czech Republic and Luxembourg on 22 September 2016, followed by a reasoned opinion on 16 February 2017. National authorities of Luxembourg informed that the Directive had been transposed except for the provisions f the Directive related to the designation and tasks of the body - the related draft law was under discussion at the national parliament. National authorities of the Czech Republic informed that the draft act transposing the Directive was also under discussion at the national parliament.

Since full transposition had not been formally notified to the European Commission, it decided to refer the two countries to the Court.
