Inspections of doctors and hospitals and service platforms will be carried out across the island throughout September as part of the labour inspection department’s ongoing campaign to stamp out undeclared work.

The aim is also to see the correct implementation of basic labour legislation.

The campaign’s aim is to raise awareness to all professional parties involved the sector as to the consequences of undeclared work and the non-conformity with the provisions of the relevant legislation.

At the same time, checks to verify basic employment terms (salary, working hours, days offs) will also take place.

According to the relevant legislation, in case an undeclared worker is found, a €500 administrative fine is issued multiplied by seven months unless the employer proves the violation period was shorter. If so, the fine is multiplied by the actual number of months.

The public is reminded that anonymous or eponymous complaints concerning undeclared work can be reported at 77778577.
