Posted Worker’s Directive (PWD), contracts and legal requirements
Registration of posted workers in Sweden and Europe
According to the Posted Workers Directive (PWD) companies with employees posted to other countries (than their home country) need to take into consideration host country labor law requirements. In Sweden foreign employers must report postings and a contact person with the Swedish Work Environment Authority. This registration for postings to Sweden is mandatory for all posting companies, i.e. not limited to companies within the EU/EEA.
The requirement to register is sanctioned in different ways in various countries within the EU and there are different approaches as to when registrations are needed. Hence, it is important for employers to track the travel pattern of their employees (business travelers, commuters, etc.) to be able to comply with the registration and reporting requirements in each country.
