The "Dienstleistungskompass" portal gives businesses information on the posting of workers to the most important EU members states as well as to Switzerland and Norway. In order to help businesses avoid the risk of a fine, it provides a comprehensible overview of the legal provisions and regulations dealing with the notification of posted workers.
The "Your Europe" portal gives individuals and businesses practical information on their rights and opportunities in the EU. It focuses on real-life, cross-border situations, e.g. European citizens wishing to work or study in another country in the EU, or European businesses wanting to move to or open a new branch in another country in the EU.
