On 3 September, Commissioner Marianne Thyssen exchanged with the European Parliament’s Committee on Employment and Social Affairs on the revised Posted Workers Directive.

However, one question was not dealt with: What actually happens if a company that posted workers goes bankrupt in the home country, leaving employees behind with unpaid wages?
