Exploring the fraudulent contracting of work in the European Union - Executive summary

The fraudulent contracting of work is an important issue in many European countries. This report looks at these practices across the EU and shows how the issue is tackled in the 28 EU Member States (EU28) and Norway. Applying juridical criteria, the study defines the fraudulent use of an employment or contractual relationship on the basis of two co-existing conditions, whereby: a specific employment or contractual arrangement is used to hire workers or to subcontract certain work activities; and the factual circumstances of the specific employment or contractual relationship do not correspond to the legal, formal requirements for that specific form of contracting work, either directly through an employment relationship or indirectly through a subcontracting relationship. Read more in the report - see Related content.
