Senate passes unregistered work bill
The Upper House today gave unanimous approval to the Promotion of Registered Work and Prevention of Labour Fraud bill, which proposes a series of sanctions and reductions for employer contributions to fight against unregistered employment figures.
The passed with the vote of all 57 members present in the session, although Civic and Radical Union senators proposed several modifications which eventually were rejected.
The ruling majority of the Senate represented by the Victory Front had already reformed the original bill before voting, including a number of opposition proposals as well as observations made by government-aligned senators.
