Severe consequences of illegal employment from 2022

From January 1, 2022, in the event of finding illegal employment, i.e. employment that is not reported and not charged with income tax and social insurance contributions, the entire negative consequences will be borne by the dishonest employer. The employee, on the other hand, will not bear any consequences on this account. The same principle will penalize the payment of part of the salary without disclosing it, i.e. without paying income tax and social insurance contributions.

The National Labor Inspectorate and the Social Insurance Institution conduct more and more checks in terms of detecting illegal employment and illegal payment of part of remuneration. These institutions admit that it is difficult to detect such situations. Until now, employees have been reluctant to disclose this as it has had negative financial consequences for them as well.
