Apart from the link I supplied, I have also spoken to some embassies if only to ask a question I already had the answer to; you do not have to go through each countries application for work permit if you are an EU resident, if that was ever the case it no longer applies in the majority of cases - read the passage contained in the link. In the case of The Netherlands EU nationals have to apply for work permit although they are not granted with one but as you would hope are allowed to work there. This as far as I can ascertain it to keep tabs on who is living there - not such a bad idea.

The rest of your post is either misinformed or out of date, the restriction you mention regarding Rhodes no longer applies. I have never heard of local laws being implemented in contradiction to EU laws.

I would try asking your local Citizens advice, or welfare rights officer! They will tell you point blank, they can only work under local laws and not European laws. Better still pick up a phone book and try and find anyone practising European law.

I went through the law society and they couldn't provide anyone in the UK to take a case up. So if you can find one let me know becuase i still have unfinished business with UK mind you i haven't searched the internet the last 6 months.

I don't know where you get this from the CAB would know stuff all about local laws in another European country. Besides there are any amount of people working in various EU countries which are not their native.

Ozchick the embassy is the best bet, to help you solve the problem.
When I was crop spraying with the choppers around GB, we had many guys from Aus and New Zealand employed, and we was also in the European Union at the time, though most were looking for only 6 month employment contracts, because of backpacking. But they all came through the embassy link.

Plavt I only have one thing to say about the UK and Europe, I have lived 25 years in Europe and I am treated like an equal person of society based on taxation, I have nothing against paying a minimum 42% income tax and at time and politics, I paid 68% income tax in Europe for many years too.


Though people are allowed to manage their own lives and incomes, are you?
I don't think so! You people have a 15 or 20 page form to fill in when you become unemployed, you have no social welfare officer to communicate with. No body is allowed to be put on pension only long term sick.
The freak place is a joke, and you are a marionette of your own making. Where those Countries that are advanced are picking up 1200£ a month in unemployment benefit and have been doing for over 30 years.

The UK amended the social welfare law, away from the European union by calling a social welfare payment by another name...you guys have been screwed the last 200 years, and are still getting screwed 40£ a week unemployment benefit, a frigging person over 70 and selling soft tissue makes more than that here.

You cannot say that I do not know the UK, when my own daughter also draws between 400 and 500 pound a week with free transport, for some it far out ways, what they could ever earn. Though I'm an old hand with UK and those I know have their have also worked all their lives. You know very little of European law,and I do not appreciate the ignorance. That is why I suggest you take a trip to CAB and ask them.

And again Euroean lawyer in UK would be a nice contact, though make sure you dig deep!
