Equal treatment and qualifications

Make sure you treat jobseekers from other EU countries the same as applicants from your country. You must also provide the same working conditions for your staff, regardless of their EU country of origin, and you cannot discriminate because of gender, racial or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age or sexual orientation.

You must provide reasonable accommodation to employees with disabilities. This way, they can apply, perform and advance in job functions and undertake training. Under EU law, the right to reasonable accommodation extends to all work-related activities.

To work in your country, staff who obtained their qualifications in another EU country must make sure that their experience and profession are recognised in your country, for example, by using the European Professional Card.
