Does the municipality have to perform checks concerning contractor’s obligations from a company that the municipality accepts to provide social and health care services with a service voucher for local residents?
Contractor's obligations and liability
According to Act on Service Voucher for Social and Health Care Services, the customer, i.e. a municipal citizen, enters into an agreement with the service provider for the service. The municipality is not obliged to perform checks concerning contractor’s obligations, as there is no temporary agency work or subcontracting agreement between the municipality and the service provider.
