Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Krzysztof Hetman (EPP), Jarosław Duda (EPP)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Directive (EU) 2018/957 concerning the posting of workers

By 30 July 2020, Member States are required to transpose into their national legal systems the revised Directive (EU) 2018/957 concerning the posting of workers. Unfortunately, most of the host countries have not yet transposed the directive or published information on the conditions of employment and pay on the single website, which is a prerequisite for employers to comply with the new rules. Given the coronavirus pandemic, there is a huge concern that neither the national administrations nor the employers or employees will be ready when the new rules come into force.

In this context we would like to ask:

What will a failure to transpose the revised directive in a given Member State mean for the employers of posted workers? Will the employer be able to continue to provide services on the current basis?

According to the Commission, what is the state of play of the work on transposing the directive in the Member States? How many countries does the Commission believe will have transposed the directive on time?

How will the Commission ensure that the information on the new rules on posting and pay, on collective agreements in force and on the conditions of employment applicable to long-term postings will be published on time on the single website? What measures has the Commission taken in this regard?
