(2) Slobodno kretanje radnika daje pravo svakom građaninu da se slobodno odseli u drugu državu članicu kako bi ondje radio i živio za tu svrhu, te ih štiti od diskriminacije u pogledu zapošljavanja, naknade i ostalih uvjeta rada u odnosu na državljane te države članice. Treba ga razlikovati od slobode pružanja usluga, koja uključuje pravo poduzeća da pružaju usluge u drugoj državi članici, zbog čega mogu privremeno poslati („uputiti”) svoje radnike da obavljaju posao potreban za pružanje tih usluga ondje.

(3b) Kako bi se osigurala usklađenost s Direktivom 96/71/EZ bez nepotrebnog administrativnog opterećivanja pružatelja usluga, bitno je da se činjenične elemente navedene u odredbama o sprečavanju zloupotrebe i zaobilaženja u ovoj Direktivi smatra indikativnima i neiscrpnima. A posebno ne bi trebalo zahtijevati da svaki pojedini element bude zadovoljen u svakom slučaju upućivanja.

(4) Kako bi se spriječilo, izbjeglo i suzbijalo zaobilaženje i/ili zlouporaba važećih pravila od strane društava koja izvlače nepropisne ili prijevarom stečene koristi od slobode pružanja usluga ugrađene u Ugovor i/ili od primjene Direktive 96/71/EZ, treba unaprijediti provedbu i praćenje pojma upućivanja.

U tom je kontekstu bitno naglasiti važnost alata za praćenje kako bi se osigurala usklađenost s važećim pravilima, a posebno minimalnim uvjetima zapošljavanja, kao i kažnjavanje onih koji zaobilaze ta pravila.

(4a) U slučaju nepridržavanja pravila, na primjer kod lažnog upućivanja radnika, primjenjuju se pravila iz Uredbe (EZ) br. 593/2008 o pravu koje se primjenjuje na ugovorne obveze (Uredba Rim I). Prilikom utvrđivanja primjenjivog prava prema Uredbi Rim I u obzir se trebaju uzeti odredbe koje su najpovoljnije za radnika.

(6) Kao što je slučaj s Direktivom 96/71/EZ, ova Direktiva ne bi smjela dovoditi u pitanje primjenu prava koje se u skladu s člankom 8. Uredbe Rim I primjenjuje na individualne ugovore o radu ili primjenu Uredbe 883/2004 Europskog parlamenta i Vijeća od 29. travnja 2004. o koordinaciji sustava socijalne sigurnosti i Uredbe (EZ) br. 987/2009 Europskog parlamenta i Vijeća od 16. rujna 2009. o utvrđivanju postupka provedbe Uredbe (EZ) br. 883/2004 o koordinaciji sustava socijalne sigurnosti.

(8) Sindikati imaju važnu ulogu u kontekstu upućivanja radnika radi pružanja usluga jer socijalni partneri mogu, u skladu s nacionalnim pravom i/ili praksom, odrediti različite razine (naizmjenično ili istodobno) važećih minimalnih plaća.

(8) U mnogim državama članicama socijalni partneri imaju važnu ulogu u kontekstu upućivanja radnika radi pružanja usluga jer oni mogu, u skladu s nacionalnim pravom i/ili praksom, odrediti različite razine (naizmjenično ili istodobno) važećih minimalnih plaća. Uz to pravo trebala bi postojati i obveza socijalnih partnera da obavješćuju i informiraju o tim plaćama.

(8a) Nadzorna tijela u državama članicama imaju najvažniju ulogu u provedbi Direktive 96/71/EZ. Zapošljavanje bez prijave može se zaustaviti samo učinkovitim i djelotvornim provjerama sukladnosti s minimalnim uvjetima zapošljavanja. Praćenje država članica ne smije se ometati ni na koji način.

(10) Odgovarajuća i učinkovita primjena i provedba ključni su elementi u zaštiti prava upućenih radnika, dok loša provedba potkopava učinkovitost pravila Unije koja vrijede u tom području. Bliska suradnja između Komisije i država članica stoga je nužna, a ne treba zanemariti ni važnu ulogu inspektorata za rad i socijalnih partnera u tom pogledu.

(10) Odgovarajuća i učinkovita primjena i provedba ključni su elementi u zaštiti prava upućenih radnika i u osiguravanju prava poduzeća da pružaju usluge u drugoj državi članici, dok loša provedba potkopava učinkovitost pravila Unije koja vrijede u tom području. Stoga je nužno uspostaviti i održavati blisku suradnju između država članica, Komisije te mjerodavnih nacionalnih, regionalnih i lokalnih tijela, istovremeno naglašavajući važnu ulogu inspektorata za rad i socijalnih partnera u tom pogledu.

(10a) Učinkoviti postupci praćenja u državama članicama neophodni su i zato ih treba uvesti u cijeloj Europi. Države članice trebaju osigurati odgovarajuća financijska sredstva kako bi omogućile nadležnim tijelima da otkrivaju i suzbijaju zaobilaženje važećih pravila. Države članice imaju pravo provoditi učinkovite, redovite i fleksibilne inspekcije potrebne da se osigura potpuna usklađenost s Direktivom 96/71/EZ i odredbama ove Direktive, pod uvjetom da su opravdane, razmjerne i nediskriminirajuće.

(11) Uzajamno povjerenje, duh suradnje, stalni dijalog i uzajamno razumijevanje nužni su u tom pogledu. Nedovoljna suradnja između država članica ostaje problem pri provedbi Direktive 96/71/EZ i sprječava stvaranje jednakih uvjeta za poduzeća i zaštitu radnika. O nepotpunom pridržavanju država članica ove Direktive treba obavijestiti Europsku komisiju koja će odlučiti hoće li pokrenuti postupke zbog kršenja u skladu s Ugovorom.

(12) U cilju bolje i ujednačenije primjene Direktive 96/71/EZ prikladno je predvidjeti sustav za elektroničku razmjenu podataka kako bi se olakšala administrativna suradnja, a nadležna tijela trebala bi se što više koristiti Informacijskim sustavom unutarnjeg tržišta (IMI). Međutim, to ne bi trebalo spriječiti primjenu bilateralnih sporazuma ili dogovora koji se odnose na administrativnu suradnju.

(13a) Zabrinjavajuće je to što države članice još uvijek imaju brojne poteškoće s naplatom prekograničnih upravnih globa i kazni te što se uzajamnim priznavanjem upravnih globa i kazni treba baviti u budućem zakonodavstvu.

(14) Treba dodatno konkretizirati obveze država članica da učine informacije o uvjetima zapošljavanja opće dostupnima i da osiguraju učinkovit pristup tim informacijama, ne samo pružateljima usluga iz drugih država članica, nego i dotičnim upućenim radnicima.

(14) Poteškoće u pristupanju informacijama o uvjetima zapošljavanja vrlo su često razlog zašto pružatelji usluga ne primjenjuju postojeća pravila. Države članice stoga trebaju osigurati da takve informacije budu opće dostupne, besplatne i da im se omogući učinkovit pristup, ne samo pružateljima usluga iz drugih država članica, nego i dotičnim upućenim radnicima. Države članice isto tako trebaju uspostaviti kontaktne točke da omoguće radnicima i pružateljima usluga da ostvare svoje pravo na informacije, savjet i podršku.

(15) Države članice trebaju odrediti način na koji davatelji i primatelji dobivaju lako dostupne relevantne informacije, po mogućnosti tako da te informacije budu dostupne na internetskoj stranici, primjenjujući standarde internetske pristupačnosti. Takve internetske stranice trebaju osobito obuhvaćati svaku internetsku stranicu stvorenu u skladu sa zakonodavstvom EU-a s ciljem promicanja poduzetništva i/ili razvoja prekograničnih usluga.

(15) Kako bi se poboljšala dostupnost informacija, treba stvoriti jedan izvor informacija u državama članicama. Svaka država članica treba kreirati jedinstvenu službenu nacionalnu internetsku stranicu, primjenjujući standarde internetske pristupačnosti, i druga odgovarajuća sredstva komunikacije. Takva internetska stranica treba osobito obuhvaćati informacije o uvjetima zapošljavanja primjenjivima na upućene radnike na nacionalnom teritoriju, kao i poveznice na svaku internetsku stranicu stvorenu u skladu sa zakonodavstvom Unije s ciljem promicanja poduzetništva i/ili razvoja prekograničnog pružanja usluga.

Justification

The current situation in which terms and conditions of employment are to be found through different sources, leads to poor awareness of rules and in consequence, their non-application. Establishing a single source of information should contribute to improving its accessibility for both - employers and employees.

(16) Kako bi se osigurala ispravna primjena i pratilo pridržavanje temeljnih pravila o uvjetima zapošljavanja koja treba uvažavati u slučaju upućenih radnika, države članice trebaju primjenjivati samo određene mjere kontrole ili administrativne formalnosti na poduzeća koja upućuju radnike da pružaju usluge. Takve mjere i zahtjevi mogu se nametnuti samo pod uvjetom da nadležna tijela ne mogu učinkovito obavljati svoju nadzornu zadaću bez traženih informacija i da se potrebne informacije ne mogu lako dobiti od poslodavca upućenih radnika ili od tijela u državi članici u kojoj pružatelj usluge ima poslovni nastan, uz razumno kašnjenje, i/ili ako manje restriktivne mjere ne bi osigurale ostvarenje ciljeva nacionalnih mjera kontrole koje se smatraju potrebnima.

(16) Kako bi se osigurala ispravna primjena i pratilo pridržavanje temeljnih pravila o uvjetima zapošljavanja koja treba uvažavati u slučaju upućenih radnika, države članice trebaju primjenjivati nužan skup mjera kontrole i administrativnih formalnosti na poduzeća koja upućuju radnike da pružaju usluge kojima se učinkovito sprečavaju i suzbijaju prijevare i nepošteno natjecanje. Države članice mogu nametnuti dodatne administrativne zahtjeve i mjere kontrole koje smatraju potrebnima za učinkovito praćenje i ispunjavanje obveza navedenih u Direktivi 96/71/EZ i ovoj Direktivi.

(17) Kako bi se učinkovito provodili uvjeti zapošljavanja, treba zabraniti sve oblike korištenja lažnog statusa samozaposlene osobe radi izbjegavanja odredbi Direktive 96/71/EZ sveobuhvatnim sustavom preventivnih i kontrolnih mjera, zajedno s odvraćajućim kaznama.

(17a) Kako bi se učinkovito provodili uvjeti zapošljavanja, također je potrebno suprotstaviti se lažnom samozapošljavanju. To ima odlučujući značaj u sprečavanju mogućih zloupotreba. Odgovorno tijelo treba imati resurse potrebne za utvrđivanje ne rade li u stvari navodno samozaposleni radnici u velikoj mjeri uzastopno za iste poslodavce ili nisu li vezani za njih nekom vrstom hijerarhijskog odnosa.

(24) S obzirom na učestalost podugovaranja u građevinskom sektoru, a u cilju zaštite prava upućenih radnika, potrebno je osigurati da se u takvom sektoru barem izvođač čiji izravni podizvođač ima ulogu poslodavca može osim ili umjesto poslodavca smatrati odgovornim za isplatu minimalnog neto iznosa plaće upućenim radnicima, zaostataka neisplaćenih naknada i/ili doprinosa koje treba uplatiti u zajedničke fondove ili institucije socijalnih partnera koji su regulirani zakonom ili kolektivnim ugovorom, ukoliko su ti obuhvaćeni člankom 3. stavkom 1. Direktive 96/71/EZ. Izvođač nije odgovoran ako je postupio s dužnom pažnjom. Ona može podrazumijevati preventivne mjere u smislu dokaza koje dostavlja podizvođač, uključujući dokaze temeljene na informacijama koje potječu od nacionalnih tijela, tamo gdje je to bitno.

Skup provedbenih odredbi za sprječavanje zloupotrebe i zaobilaženja

 

1. U svrhe provođenja, primjene i izvršavanja Direktive 96/71/EZ, nadležna tijela izrađuju opću procjenu svih činjeničnih elemenata koje se smatra nužnima, posebice uključujući one iz stavaka 2. i 3. ovog članka. Svrha tih elemenata je da pomognu nadležnim tijelima prilikom provođenja provjera i kontrola te kada imaju razloga vjerovati da radnik ne zadovoljava uvjete za upućenog radnika u skladu s Direktivom 96/71/EZ. Ovi elementi su indikativni čimbenici u općoj procjeni koju treba izraditi i stoga ih se ne razmatra izolirano. Ovi elementi se prilagođavaju svakom posebnom slučaju i uzimaju u obzir posebnosti situacije i prirodu aktivnosti. Nezadovoljavanje jednog ili više ovih elemenata ne isključuje automatski mogućnost da situacija bude upućivanje; no, nadležna tijela to mogu iskoristiti kako bi im pomoglo prilikom procjenjivanja, u skladu sa stavcima 2. i 3., je li upućivanje pravo.

1. U svrhe provođenja, primjene i izvršavanja Direktive 96/71/EZ, nadležna tijela uzimaju u obzir činjenične elemente koji karakteriziraju aktivnosti koje je poduzeće provelo u državi u kojoj ima poslovni nastan kako bi odredila provodi li zaista značajne aktivnosti, osim onih isključivo administrativnih aktivnosti i/ili aktivnosti unutarnjeg upravljanja.

(b) mjesto gdje su upućeni radnici zaposleni,

(b) mjesto gdje su upućeni radnici zaposleni i iz kojeg su upućeni na rad,

Procjena ovih elemenata prilagođava se svakom posebnom slučaju i uzima u obzir prirodu aktivnosti koje provodi poduzeće u državi članici u kojima ima poslovni nastan.

 

2. Kako bi se ocijenilo izvodi li upućeni radnik svoj posao u državi članici različitoj od one u kojoj normalno radi, proučavaju se svi činjenični elementi koji karakteriziraju takav rad i situaciju radnika.

Pregledi

Kontrole i pregledi

1. Države članice osiguravaju da se uvedu primjerene provjere i nadzorni mehanizmi i da se na njihovom teritoriju provode učinkoviti i odgovarajući pregledi kako bi se kontroliralo i nadziralo poštovanje odredbi i pravila utvrđenih u Direktivi 96/71/EZ i kako bi se jamčila njezina primjerena primjena i provedba. Takvi pregledi temelje se prvenstveno na procjeni rizika koju redovito trebaju sastavljati nadležna tijela. Procjena rizika utvrđuje sektore aktivnosti u kojima je na njihovom teritoriju koncentrirano zapošljavanje radnika upućenih u svrhu pružanja usluga. Prilikom izrade takve procjene rizika izvedba velikih infrastrukturnih projekata, posebni problemi i potrebe određenih sektora, prošli zapisi o kršenju, kao i ranjivost određenih grupa radnika uzimaju se u obzir.

5. Države članice u kojima inspektorati rada nemaju nadležnost po pitanju kontrola i nadziranja radnih uvjeta i/ili uvjeta zapošljavanja upućenih radnika mogu, putem izuzeća, nakon savjetovanja sa socijalnim partnerima na nacionalnoj razini, uspostaviti ili održavati dogovore koji jamče poštovanje tih uvjeta zapošljavanja, pod uvjetom da ti dogovori nude osobama u pitanju odgovarajuću razinu zaštite jednaku onoj koja proizlazi iz Direktive 96/71/EZ i ove Direktive.

Podizvođenje – solidarna i pojedinačna odgovornost

Podizvođenje

1. S obzirom na građevinske djelatnosti navedene u Prilogu Direktive 96/71/EZ, za sve situacije upućivanja koje pokriva članak 1. stavak 3. Direktive 96/71/EZ, države članice osiguravaju, na nepristranoj osnovi s obzirom na zaštitu jednakih prava zaposlenika izravnih podizvođača s poslovnim nastanom na njihovom teritoriju, da izvođača od kojeg je poslodavac (pružatelj usluga ili poduzeće za privremeno zapošljavanje ili poduzeće koje ustupa radnike) izravni podizvođač mogu upućeni radnik i/ili zajednički fondovi ili institucije socijalnih partnera, uz ili umjesto poslodavca, smatrati odgovornim za neplaćanje sljedećeg:

 

(a) sve nepodmirene neto primitke od rada koji odgovaraju minimalnoj plaći i/ili doprinose koje treba platiti zajedničkim fondovima ili institucijama socijalnih partnera do iznosa pokrivenog člankom 3. stavkom 1. Direktive 96/71/EZ;

 

(b) sve zaostatke ili povrat poreza ili doprinosa socijalnom osiguranju koji su neopravdano zadržani iz radnikove plaće.

 

Odgovornost koja se spominje u ovom stavku ograničena je na prava radnika stečena ugovornim odnosom između izvođača i njegovog podizvođača.

 

2. Države članice dopuštaju da izvođač koji je postupio s dužnom pažnjom nije odgovoran u skladu sa stavkom 1. Takvi sustavi primjenjuju se na transparentan, nepristran i razmjerni način. Oni mogu podrazumijevati preventivne mjere koje izvođač poduzima po pitanju dokaza koje dostavlja podizvođač o osnovnim radnim uvjetima primijenjenima na upućene radnike kao što je navedeno u članku 3. stavku 1. Direktive 96/71/EZ, uključujući platne liste i isplatu plaća, poštovanje socijalnog osiguranja i/ili poreznih obveza u državi članici poslovnog nastana te poštovanje važećih pravila o upućivanju radnika.

1. Države članice poduzimaju mjere na nepristranoj osnovi, kako bi osigurale da se trgovačko društvo koje izravno ili neizravno upućuje drugo trgovačko društvo na pružanje usluga u njegovo ime može smatrati odgovornim uz ili umjesto bilo kojeg podizvođača za prava zaposlenika i/ili doprinose socijalnog osiguranja koje treba platiti zajedničkim fondovima ili institucijama socijalnih partnera.

 

Odgovornost koja se spominje u ovom stavku ograničena je na prava radnikâ stečena tijekom ugovornog odnosa između izvođača i njegovog podizvođača.

Države članice također mogu, u skladu s pravom Unije, dopustiti takvu odgovornost u sektorima koji nisu navedeni u Prilogu Direktivi 96/71/EZ. Države članice mogu u tim slučajevima dopustiti da se izvođač koji je postupio s dužnom pažnjom kako je utvrđeno nacionalnim pravom ne smatra odgovornim.

2. Stavak 1. ne dovodi u pitanje stroža pravila o odgovornosti prema nacionalnom pravu.

4. Unutar tri godine nakon datuma navedenog u članku 20., Komisija, uz savjetovanje s državama članicama i socijalnim partnerima na razini EU-a, ponovno provjerava primjenu ovog članka s ciljem predlaganja, po potrebi, svih nužnih amandmana ili prilagodbi.

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

Posting of workers plays a crucial role in the context of cross-border provision of services and the development of the internal market. Every year around one million EU citizens are posted to work in another Member State. This category of workers needs to be protected especially in the time of crisis, when their potential and competitiveness allow maintaining a certain level of employment or even helping generating new jobs. We shall act in order to develop and improve the mobility of European undertakings in the internal market. This will definitely contribute to economic growth and stability of the European Union.

The freedom to provide services (it needs to be distinguished from the free movement of workers), under which posting takes place, is one of the pillars of the internal market and constitutes a basis of cross-border mobility of thousands of European undertakings. The guarantee of freedom to provide services has to come together with the guarantee of workers’ rights. In this context, a balanced approach is indispensable when it comes to measures and instruments proposed. The cooperation between Member States must be further enforced to better protect and survey this special category of posted workers on the European internal market.

ENFORCEMENT DIRECTIVE

The experience of the past years shows clearly that there is an urgent need of improvements in order to secure a better implementation, application and enforcement of the Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services. There is a series of problems that range from disrespect of workers’ rights and lack or inaccessibility of information to persisting obstacles in the cooperation between Member States or lack of execution of fines and penalties in the cross-border context. Moreover, in the past years there were several ECJ's judgments resulting in delimitation of certain measures in the legal framework concerning the posting of workers. Therefore, on the 21st of March 2012 the European Commission proposed an Enforcement Directive with new solutions and measures. The Enforcement Directive is based on Articles 53(1) and 62 TFEU which, for the sake of legal clarity, should be maintained.

The rapporteur acknowledges the need for improvements in order to secure a better implementation, application and enforcement of the Directive 96/71/EC and therefore welcomes the European Commission’s proposal. In the rapporteur’s view the Enforcement Directive shall in general:

 contain balanced measures in order to protect both, posted workers and freedom to provide services;

 set a clear legal framework for the category of posted workers so that their potential and competitiveness is used, especially in the time of crisis, to combat the growing unemployment;

 improve the access to information, both for companies and employers, to make posting easier and safer;

 improve cooperation between Member States in order to better secure employers’ rights;

 avoid unnecessary bureaucratic burdens for the companies (especially SMEs) which could hamper their mobility in the internal market and their capacity to create new jobs.

Accessibility of information (art. 5)

Taking into account that problems with accessibility, transparency and exhaustiveness of information on terms and conditions of employment are very often a cause of inapplication of rules, there is an urgent need to improve access to and communication of information. The existence of different labour market models and industrial relation systems in the EU, where generally binding rules are established alternatively or simultaneously by national authorities or social partners, creates problems in identifying the terms and conditions of employment to be applied. In order to solve the problem the rapporteur proposes to introduce a single national website per Member State with all the necessary information on binding terms and conditions of employment. The rapporteur insists also on ensuring the accessibility of information at EU level through updated, exact and exhaustive information in the country fiches published on the EC website. Improving the accessibility of information, also by making it available to workers and service providers in English and other most relevant languages, will help eliminating a series of problems, which, as today’s experience shows, can cause serious consequences to both undertakings and posted workers.

Legal clarity and proportionality of the proposed measures (art. 3, 9)

In order to guarantee a legal clarity and certainty a list of uniform measures at EU level must be established. Two articles in the Enforcement Directive are of paramount importance here - articles 3 and 9.

The rapporteur proposes to maintain the indicative character of the lists in Articles. The two lists of criteria in article 3 shall combat and prevent the circumvention of law but cannot lead to situations where honest undertakings are excluded from certain national markets. Posting of workers is not a national phenomenon, it is a cross-border activity which requires a common legal framework and a common approach. Therefore the lists have to contain common indications at EU level.

Establishing a common list of criteria in article 3 is directly linked to the introduction of a common list of control measures in article 9. The rapporteur firmly opts for clarity in the context of controls, what can only be guaranteed by a common list of possible control measures. The legal certainty should be obtained by a clear communication of what is to be controlled.

The proportionality of proposed measures is a fundamental requirement for their acceptance at EU level.

Cooperation between Member States (art. 6, 7, 18)

Having regard to the fact that posting of workers is a cross-border activity, proper and effective cooperation between the competent authorities from the Member State of establishment and the host Member State is necessary.

In order to improve administrative cooperation between Member States, a better use of the IMI system has to be secured. Thus, the rapporteur proposes the obligatory use of the IMI system always when it is possible and the revision of deadlines proposed by the EC, in order to make them more feasible. Additionally, the matter of data protection is to be guaranteed.


OPINION of the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (4.3.2013)

for the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs

on the proposal for a directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the enforcement of Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services

(COM(2012)0131 – C7‑0086/2012 – 2012/0061(COD))

Rapporteur: Malcolm Harbour

SHORT JUSTIFICATION

The free movement of workers and the freedom to provide services are fundamental pillars of the internal market. When an undertaking sends workers to another Member State in the context of a service provision, the Posted Workers Directive 96/71/EC aims to protect the rights of such workers and prevent social dumping. This Directive has proven to be heavily circumvented and insufficiently enforced. In response, the Commission proposed an enforcement Directive.

The purpose of the enforcement Directive must be to create feasibility of the provision laid down Directive 96/71/EC, to ensure a level playing field for companies, to create disincentives for circumvention and to safeguard the protection of workers rights.

Your Rapporteur has proposed additional text to underline the objectives of 96/71/EC, focussing on no discrimination between employees on the basis of nationality, and stressing that the proposed enforcement Directive should respect the principles laid down in 96/71/EC while improving enforcement and effectively sanctioning circumvention.

Your Rapporteur has introduced a clarifying text in a number of areas. These include clearer definitions and clarification of the roles and responsibilities of Member States and service providers, such as the evidence that an employer-employee relationship existed prior to posting. Your Rapporteur proposes a minimum set of enforcement measures and an open list in Article 9 that is essential to allow Member States the necessary flexibility to take additional measures to ensure the proper enforcement of 96/71/EC

In order to combat circumvention, your Rapporteur has made 3 key proposals. Firstly, that in case of non-compliance with Directive 96/71/EC and this directive, the concerned undertaking shall be covered by the relevant legislation applicable in the country of service provision, and all concerned workers shall be deemed workers exercising their freedom of movement within the Union in according with Article 45 of the TFEU which stresses non-discrimination.

Secondly, an amendment of the legal base of the proposal to clarify this Directive concerns the free movement of workers and services. Thirdly, a strong sanction for those Member States who do not cooperate when asked to provide the necessary information to verify a posting situation.

Abuse of subcontracting chains is not unique to the construction sector. Therefore joint and several liability should be extended to all sectors. The requirement for due diligence would be difficult to implement in practice, thus it has been deleted. Member States should take the necessary measures, according to their own experiences and procedures, to ensure implementation of joint and several liability. The introduction, or continued application of more stringent rules on the national level should also be permitted. The Commission, in cooperation with the European Parliament and Council should review the application of this Article with a view to proposing, where appropriate, modifications.

Your Rapporteur considers that sound administrative cooperation and mutual assistance key to the success of the proposed Directive. Whilst your Rapporteur sees the potential of the IMI system for rapid exchange of information which overcomes language barriers, some Member States already have highly effective non-IMI based methods of administrative cooperation. Member States should be free to apply bilateral agreements outside of IMI. Competent Authorities must provide information requested without delay and where information is not available, officially declare the absence of such information.

In order to increase information available to workers, contact details of competent authorities should be publically available. In addition, information on terms and conditions of employment should be generally available, free of charge in a clear, transparent, comprehensive and easily understandable way.

In order to improve the administrative cooperation and mutual assistance, the Commission should present the results of an Impact Assessment on the feasibility of an EU-wide notification or registration system based on and compatible with existing systems in Member States. Secondly, the Commission should propose a European register for serious offenders (a "black list") of companies proven to flout the provisions of 96/71/EC and other relevant Union legislation.

The success of the proposed Enforcement Directive and 96/71/EC depends on not only political will but also on the allocation of sufficient resources which is why your Rapporteur proposes text obliging Member States and Commission to dedicate the necessary resources in order to make proper enforcement of 96/71/EC a reality.

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(24) In view of the prevalence of subcontracting in the construction sector, and in order to protect posted workers‘ rights, it is necessary to ensure that in such sector at least the contractor of which the employer is a direct subcontractor can be held liable to pay to posted workers the net minimum rates of pay due, any back-payments of outstanding remuneration and/or contributions due to common funds or institutions of social partners regulated by law or collective agreement in so far as these are covered by Article 3 (1) of Directive 96/71/EC in addition to or in place of the employer. The contractor shall not be held liable if he/she has undertaken due diligence. The latter may imply preventive measures concerning proof provided by the subcontractor, including where relevant based upon information emanating from national authorities.

Proposal for a directive

Recital 27

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment
