Section 12A. Posting from Norway of employees hired from temporary employment agencies

If an undertaking in Norway has hired an employee from a temporary-work agency and sends that employee on a temporary service assignment outside of Norway, the temporary-work agency is responsible for ensuring that the employee is covered by the provisions of the host country such as the working and employment conditions issued for implementing Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services. This applies irrespective of whether the temporary-work agency is established in Norway or in another country.
In the event of an employee being posted as referred to in paragraph one, the hirer must inform the temporary-work agency of the posting within a reasonable period of time before the assignment commences.
