Crossing borders, and then…
Your employee’s social security protection may change when he or she is assigned to work outside his home country. It is up to the employer to test whether or not these provisions fit the level and quality of benefits stipulated in the employment contract.
In scope are provisions that cover risk of illness, death and disability and others that refer to other entitlements, such as unemployment benefit and pension rights.
Coordination of social security
Which social security system applies? The ground rule is that one needs to distinguish between treaty- and non-treaty countries. Treaties are either bilateral agreements between states, or European agreements. The EU-rules for the coordination of social security systems aim to undo the negative effects mobility may have on social security for the mobile EU-citizen. These rules are complex.
