Preparatory action: Information centres for EU migrant workers and posted workers PROGRESS Closed!


The overall scope of this Preparatory Action is to assess the possibilities and set out a framework for the future creation of a transnational EU-wide network of information centres involved in the provision of information and legal support.


Applicants are asked to present and detail actions which focused on enhancing the applicant's capacity in the following fields:

  • Activities aimed at providing EU migrant workers with legal support and information on the labour market and on employment legislation in force in the host country and other relevant national issues through back-office and front-office activities and the setting up of help-desks;
  • Measures to monitor existing sources of legal information for EU migrant workers and posted workers and actions aimed at updating, enhancing and simplifying such legal information to ensure the full recognition of rights, in particular as regards employment rights. Such measures shall be specially designed to combat discrimination in individual cases as well as to combat discriminatory measures of a more general nature.
In addition to existing activities in the two above-listed fields, shall develop at least one of activities listed below, operating in the following two main areas:
