On January 26, 2021, CRPN will take part in the cycle of seminars on worker mobility in Europe in order to discuss postings in the air transportation industry.
With more than 2.9 million A1 posting forms issued in 2018 by EU-EEA member States and Switzerland for either their own or third-country citizens, posting and multi-State employment circumstances are no longer a marginal phenomenon.
The mobility rules currently available to us were drawn up as an exception to the principle of worker membership in the social security system of the country in which they perform their work. But it appears that they are being perverted to go beyond the specific circumstances for which they were originally designed. While they could be consistently applied as things stood when they came out, they are now causing a number of difficulties under today’s climate. Indeed, posting and multi-State employment can result in unequal treatment for employees at the same workplace and between employers who do or do not engage in these practices.
In June, 2018, this observation resulted in the adoption of a new directive on worker postings. However, it did not result in any change to the European regulations on the coordination of social security systems.
What to make of this legal setup that encompasses rules which are difficult to reconcile? Does it continue to provide appropriate, consistent, and relevant ways to deal with the economic realities of the labor market and help properly regulate practices? (Source EN3S news)
To answer these three questions, France’s National School for Social Security (EN3S) is partnering with France’s Center for European and International Social Security Coordination (Cleiss) to hold a cycle of seminars that will bring together domestic and European experts, university scholars, and corporate and local-level players.”
