Things to know about EU registration
In contrast to many other EU countries, a posting to Lithuania only has to be reported if it lasts longer than 30 days, for services in the construction industry from the 1st day.
According to Lithuanian legislation, every employer posting an employee to perform temporary work of more than 30 days or construction work from day 1 in Lithuania must inform the territorial department of the State Labor Inspectorate (VDI) in advance about the location of the employment relationship. The duration of individual postings that are less than 30 days apart are added up.
Reporting to the Labor Inspectorate
The notification to the VDI must be submitted no later than 1 day before the start of the work activity and must be made for the entire duration of the assignment. In the event of changes to the duration or working conditions, a correction must be reported immediately. A posting that was previously planned to last less than 30 days and was not reported and which is now extended to a total of more than 30 days must be reported afterwards for the entire period.
Good to know …
The Lithuanian Labor Office (LDB) issues work permits for workers temporarily posted to Lithuania from third countries. Work permits are not required for workers posted from EU and EEA countries.
The employer must ensure that the legal labor regulations applicable in Lithuania are complied with, as compliance with the regulations is regularly checked by the Lithuanian authorities. In the case of violations of the reporting obligation or the working regulations, fines of 160 to 1,460 euros per violation can be imposed.
