Discounts and… "bells"
Reductions in fines for undeclared work amount to 71%.
However, the limit of the fine of 10.500 euros for each undeclared employee is inextricably linked to the duration of his employment, while in case of recurrence of the employer even within three years of the audit, the fine is increased by up to 200%. That is, it jumps to 31.500 euros.
According to the provision, for each violation found, the employer will be charged retroactively, from the date of the audit, the minimum ceiling of the provided insurance contributions for a period of three months, as it will be presumed that the employment relationship lasted at least that long.
The deduction of the fine, if the undeclared employee is hired within 10 working days with a full-time contract, is as follows:
a) 7.000 euros for a contract of at least 3 months.
b) 5.000 euros, for a contract of at least 6 months
c) 3.000 euros, for a contract of at least 1 year.
