abstract

As a predominantly receiving country for posted workers, Austria has developed a complex governance system for the implementation of the posting of workers regulation and the enforcement of rules against wage and social dumping. Despite the existence of elaborate rules and intricate enforcement mechanisms, posted workers’ labour rights in Austria are still not always guaranteed, they operate under poor working conditions, and a level playing field is not ensured. The transnational temporary mobility nature of this form of service provision creates challenges to rule enforcement, which eventually expose workers posted to Austria to several vulnerabilities.
