The revised Posted Workers Directive and its implications for employers in Hungary

Vienna, Zólyomi, E. (2021). Vienna: European Centre.

The policy brief discusses practical implications of the revised EU Posted Workers Directive for employers posting workers from Hungary. Focusing on the new rules pertaining to remuneration, universally applicable collective labour agreements, and long-term posting, it describes some of the challenges they may entail for posting employers in terms of increased administration and additional costs. The policy brief shows, among others, that Hungarian posting employers had already prior to the revisions faced difficulties with accessing posting-related information and dealing with administrative requirements in the receiving countries where they carried out services. These are likely to be amplified by the new requirements. The policy brief is available in English and in Hungarian.
