    EU Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of
    the provision of services [1] seeks to avoid 'social dumping' by ensuring
    that a minimum set of rights is guaranteed for workers posted by their
    employer to work in another country. The basic principle is that the working
    conditions and pay in effect in a Member State should be applicable both to
    workers from that State, and those from other EU countries posted to work
    there. The Directive covers undertakings established in a Member State,
    which, in the framework of the transnational provision of services, post
    workers to the territory of another Member State.

    In June 2003, the Italian government approved a draft decree enacting the
    recent 'proxy law' on employment and the labour market. The decree envisages
    numerous measures and innovations in terms of employment services and
    contracts - such as staff leasing, on-call work, project work and
    work/training contracts - and of the involvement of the social partners in
    management of the labour market. Before the decree is finally passed, it will
    be discussed by the government and the social partners, which have differing
    views on the proposals.
