According to an official announcement, the Inspection Service, in the context of the effort to combat undeclared work and the control of compliance with Basic Labor Legislation, informs that in April 2022 targeted inspections will be carried out on a nationwide basis in Agriculture / Livestock / Wholesale Farms.

The purpose of the campaign, it is stated, "is to raise awareness of all those involved in these economic activities regarding the consequences of undeclared work and non-compliance with the provisions of the relevant legislation."
