Analysis: Worker Protection Red Tape Ties Up EU Business Travel
When European corporate travel resumes once coronavirus restrictions are lifted, companies will find an onslaught of increased regulation in the region has made organising business trips a lot more complicated and expensive than it used, or arguably needs, to be. One source of red tape will be the need for work permits and other post-Brexit authorisations for travel between the European Union and its former member state the United Kingdom. The other is all of the EU’s making. The bloc has tightened its requirement for EU and non-EU travellers alike to obtain A1 social security certificates and, in some cases, file Posted Worker notification before undertaking work trips.
