RSA advises on new posting rules

0

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is advising haulage operators that new rules will apply to drivers carrying out transport duties outside their operator’s registered country.

The RSA says these changes are designed to improve working conditions and are being introduced by Directive 2020/1057

The new rules apply to drivers posted in EU/EEA Member States including Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.

How these new rules affect Irish drivers and operators

  • Where the pay rate in the posted State is higher than the Irish national minimum wage, the higher rate will be compulsory for the posted hours worked in that State.
  • Where the pay rate in the posted State is lower than the Irish national minimum wage, the Irish rate will apply.

Further information on this obligation is available from the Workplace Relations Commission
