Following the Brexit referendum the European Commission has submitted a series of legislative proposals aimed at the completion of free movement rights and
strengthening upward convergence and better working conditions in the EU Member States. The proposal to set up the European Labour Authority (ELA) serves the
institutional accomplishment of these target objectives. This paper focuses on the revised legal surroundings of posting and explores (i) to what extent the
ongoing legislative processes and the proposal on the ELA are based on the genuine agreement of Member States and other stakeholders, and (ii) to what extent
they bear the seeds of fragmentation in the Internal Market.
