If you want to stay legal, don't employ illegal labour! 

Most of us do it sometimes but you do it knowing you're taking your chances, and you don't talk about it on forums.

If someone's got no SIRET number then they are working on the black so stay clear of them at all costs. It's not worth the risk if you get caught !

Hi  Eurokine

 How much of a percentage do the social charges add on to the cost off employing casual labour?

Thanks for advice!

cheque emploi service covers all social contributions for the employed person, points towards retirement, health cover and unemployment benefit providing all the different potential contracts add up to a certain  minimum number of hours a week, on average over the month (15 I believe).

As I said in my post , insurance for the emloyees or emploters personal liability is up to them to check out

I was surprised a while ago when an architect came on a preliminary visit to discuss plans for an extension. He sent us a long agreement form part of which stipulated we had to take out insurance for anyone working at the property.

no idea, but he should have a responsibilité civile professionnelle insurance to cover damage he may cause if he is working at whatever type of work. I would also check with your household insurance. You may be covered for claims against you of this kind providing the workman is declared (ie cheque emploi or siret)

Cheque emploi gives him social security benefits & retirement contributions and you a clear conscience. Look on their website (cesu.urssaf.fr) for details of how to do it & how it works

But does it provide adequate insurance cover for dangerous work on roofs?  I guess that is our greatest concern, both for us and the worker involved.
