A new law to combat social and salary dumping came into force in Austria on January 1, 2017.

“The law should secure that the employees dispatched to Austria receive the same wage for the same work in the same place,” the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry informed on its website.

The Austrian financial police thus extended the controls that are carried out mostly in the construction sector to the transport sector, the TASR newswire reported.

The ministry also warned Slovaks that the Slovak Embassy in Vienna cannot interfere in any communication or disputes with the Austrian inspection bodies.
