Illegal employment in Latvia had increased last year in two sectors – construction and transport industry, said State Labour Inspectorate manager Renārs Lūsis in an interview to 900 seconds programme of LNT.

He said that the total number of illegally employed people in Latvia has declined, but the two aforementioned industries demonstrate a trend that ruins the otherwise optimistic picture.

Lūsis admits that illegal employment in the construction sector has increased in spite of the introduction of an electronic hour accounting system. This system was adopted in October. Because of that, the system does not function at peak performance, admits Lūsis.

As for the transport and storage industry, the chief of the labour inspectorate says that illegal employment there had increased by 40% last year.
