Ukrainian construction workers, who run from the police, and african janitors, who work in the dead of night, in bars and restaurants.
This is some of what the police face when they are chasing illegal workers in the country's workplaces - a problem that apparently only grows and grows.
according to new figures from the national Police this year have been raised a total of 681 charges against the employees, who have carried out illegal or undeclared work in the course of the year's first nine months. It writes the A4 Life.
Thus, from January to september this year has already been raised several charges against the workers than in the whole of 2018 and 2017, and the growing number of sheep, among others, the trade union 3F to sound the alarm.
- When companies use illegal labor, it is first and foremost something bad to undermine the wages and working conditions for the employees, and threaten the companies, who would like to operate a proper business with fair competition on the labour market, says Henning Overgaard, secretary in 3F for A4 Work.
however, It is not only the employees who fall into the trap, when the police chasing illegal workers - the police also more and more charges against employers who have personnel without the order of the papers.
In the first three quarters was erected 463 charges against companies, which could look forward to the fines for using illegal labor, while in the same period last year was raised 379 charges against companies.
At 3F requires that the politicians bring in with much higher financial penalties for companies found to break the rules and have employees without a work and residence permit.
at the same time, it must be possible for the authorities to deprive employers the right to conduct business, if they are using illegal labor.
the Same message sounds from the aliens, integration, Mattias Tesfaye, who is ”concerned” about the large increase in the number of charges.
- If you as an employer wonder in that use illegal labor and has a large profit margin on it, so it must cost. We do not live in the Olsen Gang-Denmark longer, there are open borders, and with them have come other arbejdsmarkedskulturer, and, not least, a cynicism, which we have not seen before. The rules need to reflect, says Mattias Tesfaye.
Take a look at nationaliterne for the illegal employees, as the police travel the charges against, is specifically a country, that stands out.
the Whole of the 104 times this year raised the charges against filipino employees who have been working without the appropriate permit, and thus comes the asian island kingdom into a clear first on the list.
A large part of the charges stem from a major action against illegal workers, which The Police directed against the 84 families back in april.
the Action led to, that there was raised a total of 83 charges against four filipino au pairs, who had worked illegally in the north sjælland families, inform The Police for A4 Work.
At north Zealand Police, a longer period of time made extra sharp to detect illegal workers.
- And with the relatively high number of charges, we have seen in the recent time, it is an area that we in all probability going to concentrate particularly on the in the future, " says Allan Lørup, vicepolitiinspektør and leader in the Udlændingecenter Zealand, for A4 Work.
