Sending of employees 

According to the Labour Law the employer has rights to send an employee from one European Union (EU) member state to another in order to provide international services.

Sending of employees are the cases when

  • employer sends an employee to another country. It can be executed on the basis of contract with a person on whose behalf the respective work will be performed;
  • employer sends employees to the branch or enterprise included in the holding company located in another country;
  • employment agency as employer sends an employee to the person on whose behalf the work will be performed. It is possible provided that person's company is located in another country or he/she performs his/her tasks in another country.

Employee sent is a person who is performing the work for a certain period in another country.
