CLR-Studies 4



Free movement of workers in the EU (2005)

Jan Cremers, Peter Donders (editors)




The introduction of the free movement principles in the EU has an impact on all industries. With regard to the free movement of workers construction is a key industry that has been faced with an enormous challenge since the opening up of the European market.

Early research by the services of the European Commission made it very clear: mobility over national borders is low in the European labour market, but, if it happens, it takes place either at management level in all industries or on building sites. CLR Studies 4 is dedicated to an analysis of the implemented EU Posting Directive in 10 countries. The study includes common conclusions and recommendations as formulated by the European social partners of the construction industry. The Study has had an impact on recent political debates in several EU member states on the so-called Services Directive and on the further implementation of the host country principles in the national legislation.
