Negligence fee

A negligence fee may be imposed on a contractor if any of the following criteria are fulfilled:

  • The contractor neglects the obligation to check.
  • The contractor has signed an agreement with a trader subject to a ban on business operations or with an enterprise whose manager or other person in a comparable position is subject to a ban on business operations.
  • The contractor has signed an agreement with a partner concerning whom they must have known that the partner does not intend to comply with statutory obligations and payments as a contracting partner or as an employer.

The negligence fee may be from EUR 2,000 to EUR 20,000.

An increased negligence fee may be imposed if the contractor has signed an agreement with a party subject to a ban on business operations or has signed an agreement with a partner concerning whom they must have known that the partner does not intend to comply with statutory obligations and payments. The increased negligence fee may be from EUR 20,000 to EUR 65,000.

The negligence fee is determined separately for each agreement. The decision to impose a negligence fee is made by the occupational safety and health division at AVI Southern Finland.
