Sweden - Legislation on posting approved - April 30, 2017

The trade unions are to be given the right to take collective action against workplaces with foreign labour which have not entered into a collective agreement. This will provide better working conditions for employees who come from abroad for a limited time. These amendments to the Posting of Workers Act, the act containing provisions on what applies when foreign companies use posted workers, involve changes to Lex Laval. Lex Laval was introduced in the Posting of Workers Act in 2010, following a judgment from the Court of Justice of the EU on how the Byggnads trade union acted vis-à-vis the Latvian company Laval.
