The Posting of Workers from Slovenia: some Particularities and Problems

The article first presents the legal background of the posting of workers that defines the status and legal definition of working abroad or working temporarily in another EU or EEA member state. It then investigates the problems and issues that this legal category of the cross-border provision of services raises in practice, citing cases of posting from Slovenia. The authors use specific cases to study two areas of systemic problems: administrative and executive. The starting point of the article is that postings expose various problems and issues in different EU member states, linked to the particularities of the labour markets; specific labour, social and other legislation; the activities of the competent public institutions and their mutual cooperation.
