Robert Wójcik, Director of the Coordination of Social Security Department at the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy, explained in the interview the difference between coordination of social security systems and harmonization of labour law regulations. Both legislations are fundamental for the posting of workers in the framework of the free provision of services.

– Particularly interesting is this part of the speech when Director Wójcik explains when the replacement of a posted worker by another posted worker is authorized and when it is not – comments on the interview Marek Benio, Ph.D. interview, Vice-President of Labour Mobility Initiative – From the so-called authentic interpretation of the law determined by the Administrative Commission for the Coordination of Social Security Systems of the European Commission it can be concluded that another posting, without taking into account the necessary break of at least two months, is unauthorized. In the view of the content of the enforcement directive, adopted shortly after the II European Labour Mobility Congress, reinterpretation and redefinition of the concept of ‘replacement’ by the Administrative Commission is seen as inevitable.
