Greek Labour Minister threatens employers with €10K fine per uninsured worker

Greek Labour Minister Yiannis Vroutsis announced that employers who do not insure their employees will be fined with 10,550 euro per uninsured worker.

Law violators will have to pay a fine of 18 times the amount of the minimum salary for every uninsured worker, according to new measures announced by Labour Ministrer Yiannis Vroutsis on Monday.

The new fine is equivalent to 18 times the amount of the minimum salary, amounting to 10,550 euros per uninsured worker.

According to the new measure, uninsured labour will from now on be treated as a readily provable violation instead of being subjectively assessed by inspectors.

“No one has an alibi,” Labour Minister Yiannis Vroutsis said in a statement, adding that uninsured labour will become an “unprofitable and risky” practice for businesses. “Whoever is planning to break the law should think twice,” the minister said. (EnetEnglish)

The Labour ministry does not foresee any provisions to protect laborers. Despite the fine, laborers will still think twice before making a denouncement to Labor inspectors and risk losing a very rare job, even in a cafeteria.

In case of repeating the law violation, the ministry foresees the shut down of the whole business or part of it.

PS Can you imagine inspectors find uninsured laborers in a restaurant kitchen and close just the kitchen lol
