The grey economy
The ground rules of working life must be observed
From the perspective of the occupational safety and health authority, the grey economy involves businesses attempting to gain financial benefit by neglecting statutory payments and responsibilities. It also includes undeclared work and misuse of social welfare benefits. The grey economy further involves businesses attempting to gain financial benefit by using businesses neglecting their statutory responsibilities as subcontractors and sources of temporary agency work. The authorities work in close cooperation to combat the grey economy.
