Tomada targets re-offending businesses as registered workers bill sent to Senate

Work Minister Carlos Tomada has admitted that 58 percent of businesses inspected under suspicion of employing unregistered workers repeat the same offences, as a project to reduce the number of 'in black' employees was sent to the Senate today.

The bill for "The Promotion of Registered Work and Prevention of Labour Fraud" was approved by an Upper House committee, and is expected to be voted on in the chamber next week.

During his defence of the project announced by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner last week, Tomada recognised that undocumented employment remained a large problem in the country.

"Some 58 percent of the businesses that we have inspected later re-offend in unregistered work," he explained to the commission, adding that 33 percent of all workers remained off the books.

Tomada also pointed out that, according to research carried out by the Ministry, "a large percentage of unregistered work can still be found in 40 percent of formal businesses."
