Finland -ID requirement on construction sites to fight grey economy -September 5, 2012

The tax office has introduced a new requirement for all construction workers to carry IDs with their taxation numbers in order to fight undeclared work. The revised legislation also compels contractors to check that sub-contractors meet their obligations towards their employees. Tax evasion and underpaid, often foreign workers have been a big problem for years in the construction sector.
