The EU Posted Workers Enforcement Directive has been implemented in Malta.  The Directive makes changes to the existing directive in the country in relation to foreign workers assigned to work temporarily in Malta. 

The changes are as follows:

  • Designated Representative  

It will be mandatory to have a designated contact within the host company in Malta that is responsible for liaising with the Department of Industrial Relations.  The name and contact details of the designated representative must be provided.  

  • Document Retention

The following documents must be made available prior to the assignee being transferred to Malta: 

i. Employment contract; 

ii. Payslips;

iii. Confirmation of employee’s working hours;

iv. Work permit; and

v. Proof of wage payments.

All documents must be translated into English if originals are in another language.
