The inspections of the Independent Labor Inspection Authority are being intensified in companies that employ distributors, due to the existence of indications of increased delinquency in the sector in question.

In total, as stated in a related announcement, 1,700 checks were carried out.

During the specific audits, violations related to undeclared work, non-observance of work time limits, non-payment of accrued wages and non-granting of personal protective equipment were found.

The following results emerged from the above checks:

– 19 distributors had not been paid the additional fee of 15% for the use and maintenance of the two-wheeler,
