Seminar: Rationales for Regulation of ‘Posted Work’- Options for a Post-Brexit Model

  • Wednesday 17th October 2018
  • Tait Building, City University of London

This event focuses on the temporary movement of natural persons, which has become an increasing feature of trade in services within the European Union (EU) by virtue of the Posting of Workers Directive (PWD) and internationally under Mode 4 of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and preferential trade agreements (PTAs).

This is the scenario where services are traded between countries, involving the temporary movement of natural persons across borders from a ‘home state’ to a so-called ‘host state’. The consequences of this form of temporary migration in the context of trade in services has been demonstrated to be problematic, in terms of the ways in which the migrant workers concerned are housed, paid and treated.
