Arrested. Businessman who employed five workers without work permits in Valencia

National police arrest business owner for employing non EU workers that did not have residencia or work permits (Non EU cannot work even for short periods without them).
Fines start at 10,000 euros per worker without work permit.

The National Police have arrested a Spanish 54-year-old man, as the alleged perpetrator of a crime against workers’ rights, for having five people working in his company who were in an irregular situation in Spain and without permission from work.

Investigations began in September when the agents were informed, thanks to an anonymous complaint, that several foreign people in an irregular situation were apparently working for a Valencian transport company.

The police established surveillance in the immediate vicinity of the company, and observed a large volume of people working there, so in mid-October they conducted a joint inspection with the Labor Inspection service.

As a result, the agents identified about 20 employees, five of which were of Argentine origin who lacked a work permits and were in an irregular situation in Spain, (ie no legal paperwork)

Continuing with the investigations, the police found that the workers apparently had also not received any financial compensation for the work performed and if there was any, it was in ridiculous amounts.

The workers had also not negotiated any type of working condition, while working for a continuous period, apparently promising the employer to negotiate labor and economic conditions once they regularized their situation in Spain.

The police found that the work days they performed were quite extensive, with the corresponding danger since the type of work they performed consisted of the distribution of goods in vans.

As a result of the investigations, the agents released the victims of labor exploitation and detained the employer as the alleged perpetrator of a crime against workers’ rights.

One detainee had a previous police record and has been brought to justice.
