an amount ranging between RON 10,000 and RON 20,000/individual;
– For illegally using more than five (5) workers, the employer shall pay either a fine or shall be punished with imprisonment from one (1) to two (2) years.
– It is for the first time that any individual performing illegal work is subject to severe sanctions.

Note: The Contract of Employment shall become null and void if the would-be employee does not provide the employer with his/her medical certificate.

Following these new regulations, inspectors of the Territorial Labour Inspectorate in collaboration with representatives of the Police and Gendarmerie have stated their
