Living & Working in Europe – How to enforce your rights

Legal steps at the national level

  • If rights are infringed by the decision of a national authority, first seek redress through the methods of appeal provided by its national legislation.
  • Once a decision has been handed down, there is a limited period of time during which it can be appealed. It is important to be aware of and comply with such deadlines.
  • EU law on free movement of workers can be invoked before the national authorities and courts in national proceedings.

EU information and problem-solving tools

  • Contact Europe Direct for information on all EU issues
  • Make an enquiry via Solvit to solve a problem with a national administration in another EU country.
  • Make an enquiry via the Your Europe Advice service to receive tailor-made legal advice, free of charge.
  • If you think that your rights under EU law are being infringed by the laws in a particular country or by the way the authorities behave, you can complain in writing to the European Commission.
