This leaflet covers a specific aspect of free movement: the posting of workers in accordance with Regulation 1408/71. It concerns, in particular, those persons who will be posted, i.e. workers, and those persons engaged in posting, i.e. employers.

The provisions covering posting in this Regulation are intended to facilitate a worker's right to freedom of movement within the Union and the freedom to provide services. This leaflet aims at providing accurate information on current practices in this field. The text is intended to provide practical guidelinesto both employers and employees.

All sorts of complications may be avoided by being well informed. The text will not, however, cover all questions. This is clearly impossible in a leaflet.The annex therefore provides a list of the competent institutions who will be able to provide further information and help with regard to posting. Finally, attention should be drawn to the fact that this leaflet is only concerned with the social security aspects of posting and not with the provisions regarding the terms of employment of Directive 96/71/EC of December 16, 1996 concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services.
