Netherlands -Only partial refunding of wage deductions -January 21, 2013

Portuguese workers at a large tunnel site near Maastricht, who had nearly €1,000 a month deducted from their wages for housing and travel, will get back around €400 for each month they have worked on the project. The building consortium will not refund all the living costs deducted from the wages of foreign workers involved with the project. The foreign workers’ working hours are now being closely monitored and they have all now been brought under Dutch employment law. An independent report into union claims had concluded that the official pay and working conditions were not respected.
