Finland - City council takes action to regulate contractors - June 2, 2011

The municipality of Espoo, the second largest city in the country, is trying to clamp down on contractors and sub-contractors that fail to comply with tax and employment rules. This applies particularly to companies providing cleaning services in schools and day-care centres that will face fines if they are found to infringe legal and contractual requirements. The JHL union welcomes the initiative and hopes that other cities and municipalities will follow Espoo's lead.
