– If an employee usually provides his work in Greece and is called to work in another member state of the European Union or in a third country, by virtue of a contract or employment relationship drawn up in Greece, apart from the essential working conditions, the employer should inform the employee in writing, informing him of the following additional information, which should be given to him before his departure:

a) the country or countries where he is to provide his work and its expected duration,

b) the currency in which his remuneration is to be paid,

c) allowances or benefits, in money or in kind, linked to the assignment of work

d) information on whether repatriation is foreseen and, if so, the conditions governing his repatriation.

e) the remuneration to which the employee is entitled in accordance with the applicable legislation of the Member State where he is to provide his work,

f) if provided for, secondment-related allowances and arrangements for the reimbursement of travel, subsistence and accommodation expenses and

g) the official national website of the host Member State, in order to inform the employee.

The information on elements b) and e) can be done by referring to the relevant provisions of the member state that will provide the work.

When the elements of the employment relationship provided for are changed in any way, because the employee is seconded to another member state of the European Union or to a third country, the employer draws up a relevant document, which he delivers to the employee at the latest until the change is made.
