1. Same working conditions
An EU national working in another EU country must be treated in exactly the same way as colleagues who are nationals of that country regarding:
- working conditions (for example, pay, dismissal and reinstatement);
- access to training.
2. Without work permit
All EU nationals have the right to work in any EU country without needing a work permit
3. Social advantages
Workers from other EU countries have the right to the same social advantages as a country's own nationals. These might include fare reductions for large families on public transport, child benefits and minimum subsistence payments.
4. Tax advantages
Workers from other EU countries have the right to the same tax advantages as a country's own nationals.
Professional and semi-professional sportspersons are covered by the same EU rules: they can work in other EU countries on the same basis as nationals of that country.
6. Cross-border workers
Cross-border workers (people who commute to work across a national border and return home at least once a week) enjoy the same benefits as any other worker in their country of employment. Although the Court of Justice of the European Union has held that no residence requirement may be imposed on these benefits, cross-border workers sometimes encounter specific problems when claiming social advantages because these are still linked to residence.
