“Black labour“

It is illegal to do work that is not listed for taxes. Paid work which is not listed for taxes is called black labour.

If there is evidence of black labour the minimum fine is double the amount which would otherwise have been taxable. If tax is avoided, because the employer is not paying the dues which are payable, for instance injury insurances for the employee, or his rights for sick days and holidays, then there are no rights earned at the pension fund and the right for unemployment benefits is reduced.

If there is uncertainty regarding the registration of work one can seek assistance with unions, union organisations and the Multicultural and information centre.
