Posting of employees to Latvia and the portal of the notification system

The employer of another Member State of the European Union or of a State of the European Economic Area, who posts an employee to perform work in Latvia, has a duty to inform the State Labour Inspectorate about this employee electronically before sending the employee, indicating the information required by the Labour Law.

In order to submit a notification on the posting of employees to perform work in Latvia, please use the portal of the notification system for employees posted to Latvia:

On the portal you can get acquainted with the information material on the posting of employees, as well as submit a notification about the employee posted to Latvia by connecting to the system with the proposed types of authentication: Latvian national portal, European electronic identification service eIDAS or using your username and password. The portal is available also in English.

In case of questions and uncertainties, please contact our support team:

Exception - posting drivers of vehicles (from February 2, 2022, a carrier that carries out international transport and to which the situation of posting is applicable, needs to prepare and submit a declaration of posting of a driver of a vehicle via the Road transport posting declaration portal)

The employer, who posts a worker to carry out work in Latvia (within the framework of the provision of works or services) shall comply with the administrative requirements established in the Labour Law and shall ensure to his/her worker the working conditions and employment provisions prescribed by the regulatory enactments of Latvia.

Before posting a worker to perform work in Latvia, the direct employer (the person with whom the seconded worker has an employment contract) is obliged to submit a notification about the posting of the worker to the State Labor Inspectorate. According to Article 162 of the Labour Law, the direct employer is the entity that is administratively responsible for the failure to fulfill this obligation.
