ENASP contributes to the European commission consultation on EU social security coordination regarding posted workers

In it’s answer to the consultation, ENASP is in favor of the modernisation of the Regulation 883/2004 to better address the issue of fraud and abuses on posting by employers. For Enasp, the improvement of the managing of the A1 document is a necessity and the introduction of binding obligations upon the Member States to secure better enforcement could be an appropriate solution.
