Carrying out work without an individual employment contract and without observing the related clauses in the mandatory legislation is illegal work, which has many disadvantages for workers. Upon employment, to make sure you have an individual employment contract, drawn up in keeping with the legal provisions in force, make sure that:
The contract, once signed, can only be amended/modified with your approval. A contract that you signed, but is not signed and sealed by the employer, and was not officially registered to the competent work institutions, has no legal value.
A toll-free phone line was activated in 2011 for notifications regarding illegal work. You have access to this line by calling the green number 0800868622, only on the landline telephone networks.
Romania facilitates the return of foreign citizens, victims of human trafficking, to their country of origin, with no unjustifiable delay, and ensures their safe transportation up to the border of the country, unless provided otherwise in bilateral agreements. The foreigners who are victims of human trafficking can be accommodated in special centres, without them having to be taken in public custody. To this end, the management of these centres set special areas, separated from those foreigners who have been taken in public custody. The foreigners who are victims of human trafficking are informed, in a language they can understand, about the legal and administrative procedures applied in their case, and may benefit from psychological counselling, medical and social assistance, as well as medicine and food, just like the victims who are Romanian citizens.
