Bulgaria Introduces Fines for Workers Without Labour Contracts

Bulgaria's Parliament adopted amendments to the Labour Code introducing fines for employees working without labour contracts.

The fine will be three times the size of the employee's social insurance contributions, state-run Bulgarian National Television (BNT) reported.

Under the amendments, both employer and employee will be fined. The fine for employers will vary between 1,500 levs ($998/767 euro) and 15,000 levs.

The changes aim to bring to light employers in the grey sector, BNT quoted social minister Totyu Mladenov as saying.
