Abstract

A review of policies introduced since 2008 for tackling undeclared work in the EU-27 and Norway.

Since the publication of previous reports on how undeclared work is being tackled in the 27 Member States of the European Union (EU27) and Norway (Eurofound, 2008, 2009), the ongoing recession took hold. The aim of this report is to provide an updated overview of the policy approaches and measures that have been implemented to tackle undeclared work since the beginning of the recession in 2008.

Keywords: undeclared work, informal economy, informal employment, shadow economy

JEL Classification: O26
