In our March labour law update we reported on an EU draft Directive which seeks to improve the implementation and enforcement of the existing Posting of Workers Directive (PWD). The UK Government is now seeking views from stakeholders on the impact of the EU's proposals to help inform its negotiating position, with a closing date of 26 July. This is relevant to businesses, particularly in construction, who employ posted workers from the EU (including through sub-contractors), or post workers to other member states. The draft Enforcement Directive seeks to improve cooperation between member states about potential contraventions of the PWD, set out mechanisms for the cross-border enforcement of PWD penalties levied on employers and, more controversially, introduce a new system of joint and several liability for contractors in the construction sector.
