Posting of workers platform

When is notification of posting workers to Austria required?


  • an employer established in an EU or EEA Member State or in Switzerland
  • posts one of their employees to perform work in Austria,

the employer is required to provide notification, i.e. submit a report.

Austria has no minimum posting period, below which notification would not be required.
Even a brief deployment of workers from another country is subject to notification.

Notice need not be given, however, of certain cross-border work activities involving few hours for a brief period.
More details can be found under the menu item “FAQ”.

User undertakings are also required to give notice when posting to Austria workers that were hired out to those undertakings in another country.

Other elements of posting subject to notification are described under Posting of workers under the menu item “Terms”.
