With Italy having no minimum wage set by law, much relies on trade unions and employers' organisations to negotiate a minimum wage that enables posted workers to have a decent income. In any of the wage setting mechanisms, are there specific rules applicable to posted workers for the determination of the constituent elements of the minimum rates of pay? We know that there are not. The wage setting mechanism does not include any specific rules applicable to posted workers for the determination of the minimum wage. Workers posted to Italy in most cases are provided with minimum wages similar to those of local workers. Though, wages in general may be slightly lower due to less experience with negotiating additional wage elements, due to the fact that posted workers often carry out lowpaid jobs or are intentionally misclassified. Could ncbas provide for specific indemnities to be paid to workers in the case of their temporary posting, in addition to the regular salary, or alternatively, a statutory minimum wage be fixed for the posted workers by law, given their vulnerability in the eu labour market?
