Posting of Workers and Labour Rights

Mr Giuseppe Casale, Director of LAB/ADMIN, took part in the Conference on Posting of Workers and Labour Rights organised in Oviedo by Spanish Presidency of the European Union. In particular, it was discussed the cooperation of labour administration and inspections amongst Member States. Many examples of cooperation were presented by the panellists and several questions were also posed concerning the future application of the Directive. In particular, it was reached a consensus that in addition to improve the quality of information to be provided amongst Member States, it would be worth exploring the possibility to create a European Social Inspectorate or other appropriate structure to support Member States and national social and labour inspectorates in the application and enforcement of national and European minimum rules and workers’ protection.
