Priorities Netherlands Labour Authority

The Netherlands Labour Authority is selective in its supervision. It determines its priorities on the basis of risk analyses that cover the entire policy field of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment. Thus the Inspectorate can use its capacity efficiently and successfully where it is really needed.

On the basis of the results of the risk analysis the Inspectorate has allocated a high priority to the following task areas:

  • notorious offenders;
  • illegal employment;
  • labour exploitation;
  • pretence constructions;
  • companies with a structurally poor score in the field of safety in the workplace;
  • companies that work with hazardous substances;
  • benefit fraud.

If changing circumstances give cause to this, the set priorities will be adapted.
