Legal Posing Lab: Posting workers to Belgium and France

LII Legal Posting Lab

We invite everyone interested in the subject of posting workers to France and Belgium for the 52nd meeting in the series of Legal Posting Lab. On July 16, we will meet again online via the Zoom platform. For the first time, the Lab will be held in English. It will be led by Belgian lawyer Tanel Feldman, Supporting Member of the Labour Mobility Initiative Association.

Posting workers to Belgium and France after 30th July 2020

The subject of the Lab will be the posting of workers to Belgium and France after July 30, 2020. On this day, the amended Posting of Workers Directive (Directive 2018/957 amending Directive 96/71/EC) will come into force. A detailed program of webinar can be found below.

Programme of the Lab (the same issues for both Member States):

1. Remuneration – how to calculate, where to find information
2. Long term posting – calculating, interrupting and extending the period of posting
3. Cumulative calculation of posting periods of few posted workers
4. All applicable employment conditions – where to find them?
5. Travel and board cost reimbursement
6. Conditions of accommodation

France – specific problem:
7. Will the employment on the French terms and conditions (long term posting) be a criterion in determining a habitual, continuous and stable activity in France?

8. Q&A session (questions sent beforehand will be answered first).
