The fact that the internal market in general works well, you are often very difficult to avoid mistakes or difficulties in exercising your legal rights.
It may happen that the authorities will be reluctant to admit your diploma or professional qualification, you may have trouble registering your motor vehicle, it may happen that something goes wrong in the rights arising from your employment, social security, income, tax or voting rights. Neither can it be ruled out that your company will be faced with administrative obstacles, additional national requirements regarding products that others are already marketed in other EU Member States, or with problems related to the reimbursement of VAT.
These problems sometimes arise because of lack of information about your rights in Europe and procedures in other EU Member States. In such cases, visit portal "Your Europe" on the Europa website, which will help to clarify many uncertainties.
Your Europe Advice is an EU advice service for the public, currently provided by the legal experts from the European Citizen Action Service (ECAS) operating under contract with the European Commission. It consists of a team of lawyers who cover all EU official languages and are familiar both with EU law and national laws in all EU countries.
Your Europe Advice answers questions from…
individuals who are nationals of the European Union, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein
non-Europeans – if they are family members of an EU national or resident in an EU country
- European/national information and advice services, on behalf of individuals
businesses having their seat in the EU
Your Europe Advice works closely with SOLVIT, a problem-solving network that deals with problems between individuals or companies and the authorities in another country, in cases where there is a possible misapplication of EU law.
The purpose of EURES is to provide information, advice and recruitment/placement (job-matching) services for the benefit of workers and employers as well as any citizen wishing to benefit from the principle of the free movement of persons.
EURES is much more than the Job Mobility Portal that you are visiting right now.
EURES has a human network of more than 850 EURES advisers that are in daily contact with jobseeker and employers across Europe.
In European cross-border regions, EURES has an important role to play in providing information about and helping to solve all sorts of problems related to cross-border commuting that workers and employers may experience.
Set up in 1993, EURES is a co-operation network between the European Commission and the Public Employment Services of the EEA Member States (The EU countries plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and other partner organisations. Switzerland also takes part in EURES co-operation. The joint resources of the EURES member and partner organisations provide a solid basis for the EURES network to offer high quality services for both workers and employers.
