The number of companies found to be employing people illegally went up by nearly 14 percent in the last six months of 2009, the Slovak Labour Ministry stated in a report published on Tuesday, April 6.

Compared to the same period of 2008, when 188 companies in Slovakia were discovered to be employing people illegally, in 2009 the number grew to 214, with Prievidza district (Trenčín Region) having a particularly high incidence, the Labour Office was quoted as saying by the TASR newswire.

As many as 768 people were discovered working illegally in 2009. In most cases, the employers broke the law by not registering employees with social insurer Sociálna Poisťovňa. The checks also discovered people employed without a valid contract.
