What you should observe the posting be supervised in Germany by formation in their own home and cared for countless seniors. Often this is done through the so-called posting, in which mostly through a private agency a support force is hired by the family signs a service agreement with a foreign company. The care force itself is then sent by this company in the family. The Federation of European care and caregivers (BEBP e.V.) nevertheless draws attention to the legal risks of posting for years. Because discharge broadcasting undertakings must comply with a variety of legal requirements, to send their workers to Germany legally and properly. How the families as laymen can judge whether the posting is actually legal? The easiest and most important question of the family at the unloading station is the A1 certificate. This document certifies that the care is properly covered by social insurance in your home country.

To obtain such a document, however, certain conditions must be met. For one, the posting undertaking must generate the bulk of its sales in the country. To another, the company must employ his people primarily in the country and ensure a pre-and continuing employment of outgoing employees in the country. If this is the case for the undertakings concerned, is more than questionable. Because the main business objective of this company is to send support forces, for example from Poland, German families and not in your home country to deal with. The care force receives instructions from the family is already illegal posting a legitimate posting another precondition is that the employment relationship between the worker and the foreign employer is actually continues during the whole posting period. This requirement is not met, the authority to issue to the employee of the family in Germany is exercised.

This is the case, if the Employee receives the work instructions directly from the family and no longer by the foreign employer. The working relationship with the foreign employer only on paper”. This has resulted in that the family for the workers, etc. to pay taxes according to law has the usual contributions. Thus, serious legal and financial consequences on the family can come to. Also the issue should be clarified whether the support force for the family to provide mostly basic nursing activities, because then the German minimum wage must be paid her. This minimum wage not only care companies from Germany are bound, but also such companies which are resident in Poland or the Czech Republic after Germany post workers to work from there. This means that a round-the-clock care by such nurses should then cost several thousand euros per month. Can’t do it in each offer of an outgoing”round around the clock nurse at the price of 1,600 or 1,800 euros per month go to the right things. What to look for when sending the BEBP e.V. yet once clearly indicates that families who want to deal with a delegated supervision force, should insist to be presented with the A1 certificate, in the original.
