Sweden: Proposal for foreign employers to notify authorities about employees posted in Sweden

Global Watch ()

The Swedish government has submitted a proposal whereby foreign employers must report their employees seconded to Sweden to the authorities. The proposal also involves an obligation to appoint a contact in Sweden. If the rules are adopted, they will be effective from July 1, 2013 and affect foreign employers inside and outside the European Union (EU). These new rules will likely mean additional administration for foreign employers.
