Starting from November this year, fines for illegal employment in Slovakia should be higher, as stipulated by the draft amendment to the law on labour inspection. The government approved the draft revision at its session on Thursday, May 30.

The minimum fine for concurrent illegal employment of two or more persons should be at least €5,000, the SITA newswire wrote. Currently, an employer can be fined €2,000-€200,000 regardless of the number of illegally employed people. Moreover, the lower and upper limit of the fine for failure to follow legal duties is to rise from the current €65-€650 to €1000-€3,000.

As the labour department informed, over 2011 and 2012, 245 fines were imposed on employers for illegal labourers, netting €510,000. The average fine stood at €2,082. The ministry expects that higher fines will gradually reduce the number of illegal employment cases to 100 in 2013, 80 in 2015 and 65 in 2016.
