Very often, people going to work in one of the EU or EFTA countries are accompanied by the fear that they won’t be able to benefit from medical assistance during their trip. These concerns are unfounded. The legislation provides for several types of documents entitling to use health care services.

On 23 May 2023, a draft law on the posting of drivers in road transport was adopted by the Council of Ministers. This project aims to adapt the Polish provisions related to the secondment of drivers to EU solutions included in the so-called Mobility Package. The proposed changes in Polish legal regulations cover both carriers based in Poland and drivers sent abroad by them, as well as transport companies from other countries, directing their employees to carry out road transport operations in the territory of the Republic of Poland.
Groups of companies are created by enterprises with capital ties. These links are very strong. Therefore, it’s very common to post workers between enterprises belonging to the same group. If the secondment takes place to an entity belonging to a group of entrepreneurs and located in another Member State, it must fulfil the requirements determined in EU law.
The EHIC Card is the most well-known document giving entitlement to treatment abroad. It gives the right to receive medical care only to the extent necessary. This means that the scope of treatment authorised by the EHIC is quite narrow. If you are planning a longer stay abroad, it’s better to obtain a document that will guarantee the possibility to benefit from medical care services in a much wider scope than the EHIC card. The S1 document is such a certificate.

On 26 April 2023, the legal solutions introduced by the Act of 9 March 2023 mending the Labour Code and certain other acts (Official Journal of 2023, item 641) came into force.

Moreover, the employer is obliged to give appropriate information to an employee going to work or perform a professional task abroad.
The Union legislation imposes an obligation on employers to report the posting of workers to the appropriate authorities of host countries. Therefore, each EU country has taken measures allowing to make such a notification, e.g. the SIPSI portal was created in France, and in Germany – ZOLL. Submitting a declaration is relatively easy in most countries. However, there is an exception to this rule. This is CLICLAVORO, i.e. the notification of the posting of employees to Italy.
