Very short-term posting in the live performance sector: from legal obligations to daily practice
Brussels, Belgium

The European Posting of Workers Directive is more than 20 years old. The European Commission proposed to revise the directive in 2016 aiming to deliver on the principle of equal pay for equal work for posted workers. After two years of negotiations the European co-legislators found an agreement in June 2018 on the elements put forward for revision.

The text has now to be transposed into national legislation for which Member States have two years’ time. Ahead of this process this seminar will already look at the changes and adaptations that might affect the live performance sector.

This seminar aims to explain the changes to the Posting Directive and analyse - according to the sector’s characteristics - specific issues to be able to better address those with Member State authorities in the current phase of transposition. It will also look and compare the situation with other mobile sectors such as the construction or transport.

Following the presentation of the changes to the directive, the second session of the seminar will look at practices in Member States in particular in relation to administrative requirements resulting from the Enforcement Directive. Starting from a case study, the focus of this session will be to look at ways and tools to help micro-companies and SMEs at national level. The role of the future European Labour Authority ELA aiming at supporting cooperation between member states and info provision to employers and workers, will also be considered.  

Finally, as an ‘encore’ (a wink to how music groups bring one or more extra pieces of music at the end of the performance), the seminar will also offer participants a possibility to be informed on the latest state of play and developments in the area of the Commission proposal for revision of the Social Security Coordination Regulation (883/2004) and on the proposal for a European social security number announced in March 2018.


Please note that the seminar is open to Pearle* and OKO members, public administrations and guests upon personal invitation.
