Posting of workers platform

What Austrian employment laws need to be considered when posting and hiring out employees?

When posting and hiring out employees to Austria, companies are required to comply with those portions of Austrian labour law that are more favourable for the posted or hired out employees than comparable home country regulations.

The section of topics covering labour law provides information on those portions of Austrian labour law and answers the following questions:

  • What working hours must be observed?
  • Are workers entitled to annual leave?
  • What must be done to protect workers from health and safety risks?
