Randstad commissioned a study into the undeclared economy to the University of Sheffield and Regioplan Policy Research. The report reveals the important role that well-regulated employment can play in tackling the undeclared economy. In advanced economies the size of the undeclared economy varies widely – from less than 10% in countries such as the US, the UK, Japan and the Netherlands, to more than 25% in parts of Southern and Eastern Europe. It is generally acknowledged that the undeclared economy lowers the quality of work and working conditions, undermines the business environment through unfair competition, and puts the financial sustainability of social protection systems at risk.
