Posting of workers: final vote on equal pay and working conditions
Workers posted temporarily to another EU country must get equal pay for equal work in the same place, under revised rules voted by the European Parliament. Under the rules the host country's remuneration rules will apply to all posted workers; a posting can last up to 12 months, with a possible extension of six months; posted workers will be given better protection against fraud and exploitation; and travel and accommodation costs will have to be paid and not deducted from workers' salaries. Member States will have two years to transpose the rules and must put them into effect by the end of this period.Link to Press Release
