Hefty fines await employers using undeclared staff

Hefty fines, starting from Euros 3,500 for each undeclared worker, and other penalties, will be imposed according to a bill that entered yesterday into force. Wrongdoers will be given a 3-month grace period, but no more than that, Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou said on Friday. Undeclared work in Cyprus is estimated at 15.4%, according to the Minister.
