"MEDBYGGERNE” TIP COLLABORATION


To identify disreputable and criminal parties in the building and construction sector, a tip collaboration has been established between government agencies and the reputable part of the industry, as well as the trade unions. This collaboration has been called "Medbyggerne", which can be translated to "The Fellow Builders". Tips received by Medbyggerne will be anonymised and forwarded to an e-mail address for the Tax Administration and the Labour Inspection Authority. The police will be contacted by the agencies if it is considered necessary based on the tip.

WHAT IS WORK-RELATED CRIME?

Norwegian working life is, on the whole, characterised by orderly and good working conditions. Still, there are certain enterprises and sectors that are marked by illegal activities and work-related crime in the form of undeclared labour and evasion of taxes and duties. The consequences are serious, both for the affected employees, enterprises and sectors, and for the continued financing of the welfare system.

Work-related crimes are actions that break Norwegian laws relating to salary and employment, benefits and taxes. Work-related crime is often organised and exploit employees, distort competition and undermine the social structure.
