Abstract/Citation: Law (4144/2013) provides that the Financial Police is equally competent, along with the labour inspectors, to control undeclared employment of workers. It also attempts to fight undeclared employment of workers who illegally receive unemployment benefits. In addition to other penalties provided by law, Law 4144/2013 introduced a special fine of EUR 3.000 for each worker who is employed while receiving unemployment benefits. If the worker who is receiving unemployment benefits was fired and consequently rehired by the same employer, the fine amounts to EUR 5000 per employee.

Makes a number of amendments to Law No. 344/1976 concerning registration of civil status.
