Homeowners To Be Fined for Illegal Maids, Handymen

People who hire cleaning ladies or handymen in their homes without declaring their income could soon be subject to prosecution in Germany. The Federal Finance Ministry confirmed press reports on Monday that Germans could be fined a minimum of €1,500 if they are caught employing domestic workers under the table. The regulation is part of a draft law aimed at intensifying the fight against illegal employment in Germany. (dsl)
