New law to detect illegal foreign labour

BETTER methods to find foreigners who are engaged in illegal labour in Slovakia will soon be coming, based on an amendment to the Illegal Labour and Illegal Employment Act approved by the Slovak parliament on June 29. The amendment will require foreigners from non-EU countries to submit documents concerning their stay in Slovakia to one of the country’s labour inspectorates. According to the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family, the legislation was transposed from an EU directive, the TASR newswire reported.
