Report presented on 25 September 2019 by the European Commission reviewing the application and implementation of Directive 2014/67/EU and reflecting on the effectiveness in practice of the measures taken by Member States.
The free movement of workers, freedom of establishment and freedom to provide services are fundamental principles of the internal market in the European Union. Directive 96/71/EC (the Posting of Workers Directive) implements those principles with the aim to guaranteeing a level playing field for businesses and respect for the rights of workers. Directive 2014/67/EU (the Enforcement Directive) establishes a common framework of a set of appropriate provisions, measures and control mechanisms necessary for better and more uniform implementation, application and enforcement in practice of Directive 96/71/EC.
This report assesses certain provisions of the Enforcement Directive in particular, namely those regarding identification of a genuine posting and prevention of abuse and circumvention; mutual assistance; administrative requirements and control measures; subcontracting liability; and cross-border enforcement of financial administrative penalties and/or fines, as well as the adequacy of data available and the use of bilateral agreements or arrangements related to the Internal Market Information System.
