Key issues and challenges in control and supervision of undeclared work
In 2011, 13 standing groups on illegal work control were set up in the five largest cities to undertake control and prevention of UDW not only within their own counties, but also in the neighboring ones.
Detectionof UDW incidents more than doubled in 2011 compared to the previous year.
TheSLI fundamentally embarked on changing the principles of its activities, placing a greater focus on business consulting, public information and awareness raising.
As a result of increased public awareness and a no-tolerance attitude towards UDW, a growing number of alerts from residents on its alleged presence were received by phone and public e-access.
The main measures applied in Lithuania include: coordination of UDW control, standing groups on illegal work control and public information and awareness-raising campaigns.
The main characteristic of the systems is cooperation between various institutions responsible for UDW control/labour market regulation.
SLI, the main controlling institution for UDW in Lithuania, cannot unrestrictedly access all the databases it needs, especially those related to certain confidential financial information.
There are only national government institutions involved in the UDW prevention and control measures in Lithuania, social partners are actually absent from this process.
