To ensure the practical efficiency of the system established by the directive 96/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 1996 concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services, its Article 4 provides for cooperation on information between Member States.
The latter have therefore designated liaison offices and authorities responsible for monitoring the terms and conditions of employment, serving as correspondents and contact points for authorities from other Member States, for undertakings which post workers, as well as for posted workers themselves.
The main tasks of the liaison offices and monitoring authorities are:
- Make the information on the terms and conditions of employment referred to in the directive generally available.
- Monitor the compliance with the terms and conditions of employment referred to in the directive.
- Reply to reasoned requests from public authorities for information on the transnational hiring-out of workers, including abuses or possible cases of unlawful transnational activities.
- Examine eventual difficulties arising in the application of public policy provisions.
