The Inspection Service of the Ministry of Labor, Welfare and Social Insurance is conducting a nationwide inspection campaign in February to combat compliance with undeclared work and compliance with labor laws, as part of its efforts to control compliance with Basic Labor Laws.
An announcement from the Agency states that “the aim of the campaign is to raise the awareness of all those involved in these economic activities regarding the consequences of undeclared work and non-compliance with the provisions of the relevant Legislation”.
At the same time, checks will be made regarding the observance of basic employment conditions such as salary, working hours, weekly off, etc.
It is noted that, according to the provisions of the relevant Legislation, in case of locating an undeclared person in the Social Insurance Fund, an administrative fine of € 500 is issued multiplied by 7 months, unless the employer proves that the period of violation was shorter.
If it turns out that the breach period was longer, the fine is multiplied by the actual months.
It is also reminded that, on the pan-Cypriot telephone line 77778577, anonymous / anonymous complaints / information are accepted in relation to undeclared work or violation of the terms of employment.
