Revised strategy for combating work-related crime

Work-related crime entails activities that violate Norwegian legislation concerning wages and working conditions, national insurance and taxes, often in an organised form, that exploit workers or distort competition and undermine the social structure

Work-related crime has serious consequences for workers, enterprises and for society as a whole. A good and sound working life in Norway depends on compliance with rules governing working life, while preventing and combating work-related crime.The Government presented its strategy for combating work-related crime in 2015. The strategy was revised and updated in 2017, and it has now also been subject to a new revision in February 2019. The work on the strategy has been carried out in dialogue with the social partners.The Government will combat work-related crime with targeted measures, enhanced control efforts and cooperation between authorities and the social partners.
