Outsourcing Portal has published an article based on our analysis: Posted or sent? in the context of the revision of social security coordination regulations.
The whole article is available here. We were trying to explain why the European Commission proposed a new term of a “sent” person in addition to the existing one of a posted worker. At the Labour Mobility Initiative Association, we carried out the in-depth comparative analysis of the notions used in Directive 96/71/EC and Regulation 883/2004/EC. Our analysis shows that the EU legislator uses in both documents the same notion of a “posted” while having at first sight similar, yet different situations in mind, causing confusion. The revision process of the coordination regulations seems a good opportunity to fix it.
