265,000 work inspections planned during anti-black market campaign

265,000 work inspections planned during anti-black market campaign: discover what only the top, expert employment (labour) lawyers in Spain know about 265,000 work inspections planned during anti-black market campaign

The effects of the economic crisis continue to be felt and with as much as 25% of the Spanish economy believed to be outside the purview of the state and an estimated 400,000 illegal workers, the government is planning to get tough with a series of measures designed to impact on the black market.

The new campaign by the Spanish government to combat the black market is to be launched before the summer. Final details are being agreed and will be put to a cabinet meeting sometime during May. Both union groups as well as employers’ organisations are considering the draft proposals ahead of final confirmation by the council of minister’s meeting.

It is already known that among the measures that will be announced include a doubling of fines for hiring workers without the requisite paperwork being in place as well as  automatically preventing those who are working illegally while being registered as unemployed from receiving any further unemployment benefits.

More than 265,000 inspections are to be carried during the course of the campaign and while fines will not increase during an initial four month grace period they will eventually reach anywhere between €6,500 and €400,000. The campaign will be under way by July.

    Within hours of contacting Advocate Abroad, Inma was in touch with me.


    My case came at a very unexpected and emotional time, however Inma took control of the situation immediately and was the best support I could have hoped for.


    She clearly explained each step to me along the way, regularly updated me out of hours and was professional until the end. I felt very safe with my situation in her hands - she really knows her stuff and I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again.

    Inma was very professional, very helpful and guided me through the Spanish legal process simply and clearly. She fought my corner with a satisfactory outcome.


    Constant contact throughout the case on both a professional and personal level, asking about my mother who is unwell, showed compassion.


    I would recommend Inma to anyone, English or Spanish who needs help with legal advice.


    Nothing could have been done better. Excellent.
