New law targets illegal employment

THE SLOVAK Parliament approved a new law against illegal employment practices February 10.

The law defines illegal work and introduces a set of obligations for employers and the respective sanctions in order to prevent illegal employment, the Pravda daily reported.

According to the law, employers must register new workers to social insurer Sociálna poisťovňa (SP) on their first day at work at the latest, among other things.

Employers found breaching the law will be fined up to Sk1 million (€30,000) and be banned from participating in any public tenders.

The firms also will not be eligible for any public assistance.
