Black market labour robs Slovakia of Sk5 billion annually

Black market labour robs the state purse of almost Sk5 billion (€119 million) annually. Employers who pay employees in cash and do not pay fees to insurance funds are depriving the state of Sk4.72 billion (€113 million) annually, the National Labour Office (NUP) reported.

"Over the past year, the number of jobless has dropped by almost 80,000 but the number of those employed increased only by 26,000. Where are the rest?" NUP inspector Ján Vrbacký asked.

According to Vrbacký, the National Labour Inspection has been using all its capacities to track black market labour. "However, the current legislation does not provide conditions for effective results of the inspections," Vrbacký said.
