Undeclared Work Control Efficiency Problem in Lithuania

Aleksandras Patapas, Nerijus Gudonis


The aim of this article is to assess the current situation of the undeclared work control system in Lithuania and specify problem solving directions. The authors of the article seek to identify main problems and possible solutions associated with undeclared work control efficiency. Theoretical analysis is based on the Lithuanian laws and other legislation analysis, European Union document analysis, systematic analysis of scientific literature, analysis of statistical data. The research was conducted in January 2014, by using semi-structured expert survey. Inspectors of the Lithuania State Labour Inspection participated in this survey. An expert survey showed that in Lithuania there are two causes of undeclared work: State Control of socio-economic policy and the people’s attitude to undeclared work. The hypothesis was rejected. The undeclared work control efficiency problem can be solved by transforming the state’s socio-economic policy, undeclared work control legislation, increasing the qualifications of control officers, improving controls institutions material, information and technical databases, improving institutional coordination control measures.
