Currently the European Union is one of the traditional centers of gravity of the labor force.The experience since the 2004 enlargement shows that has not been of large movements of people across the continent. However, the size and impact of migration flows is varying from new Member State to old Member State and is not necessarily determined by the degree of the imposed restrictions.This article examines the structure and motivation of labor migration from Central and Eastern Europe after EU enlargement in 2004. The nature and consequences of the labor movement resources of the new EU's Member States are analyzed. The main focus of research is multistage nature of labor migration flows.
