Bulgaria -Labour inspection goes after firm that led demolition of collapsed Veronika hotel -April 09, 2015

Workers were working without contract or insurance at the firm that led the demolition of the Veronika hotel, which collapsed unexpectedly.

The labour inspectorate has started pre-trial proceedings against the firm that led the demolition of the Veronika hotel, which collapsed unexpectedly earlier this month. The firm was working on the controlled demolition when the 11 story building collapsed, killing at least one worker and leaving three or four trapped underneath the rubble. Media reported that the workers were working without contract or insurance, earning a daily salary of BGN30 (€15). The labour inspectorate said it will be pressing charges against the firm.
