NICOSIA -- The Labour Ministry wants to introduce a computerised system to monitor cases of undeclared work.
The issue was discussed on Monday at a meeting between Troika technocrats and Labour Ministry representatives.
The Cyprus News Agency said the ministry was planning to introduce a computerised system with records on businesses and the number of staff they employ and will regularly monitor paid employment.
One of the possibilities being explored is the introduction of the IT system “Ergani”, implemented by the Greek Labour Ministry. On this issue, the ministry has asked for the expertise of Troika and the EU Commission.
At the meeting the ministry’s plan to amend the law so as to increase fines for undeclared work was also discussed.
In a separate meeting at the Directorate General for EU programmes the issue of the minimum salary and cost of living allowance (COLA) were also discussed.
