As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the above-mentioned conclusion can be drawn data obtained by the State Inspectorate, which announced recently that through 621 inspections carried out during the month of June, 336 Croatian tourist facilities (54 percent) operated according to the current rules, while 285 or 46 percent were in the group of those where inspectors found 442 various violations of the regulations.
“For 162 violations of various kinds, the State Inspectorate’s inspectors applied the principle of giving an opportunity for correction, that is, they made it possible for the owners and and managers of said Croatian tourist facilities to correct the identified irregularity or irregularities during the inspection.
For 280 violations of the current regulations, 16 indictments were submitted to the competent courts, 20 misdemeanor orders were issued, and 61 fines were collected at the place where the misdemeanor was committed. Due to the identified violations, the inspectors of the State Inspectorate issued a total of 250 administrative decisions,” the State Inspectorate announced.
They noted that the most frequent violations of the regulations were related to the failure to highlight the notification on how a customer/client may submit a written complaint and the failure to observe the prescribed working hours. In addition, the sanitary inspection found a number of cases in which the workers didn’t pass health education courses, and the environmental protection inspection found irregularities related to improper separation of waste, according to the press release.
The labour inspectorate found that a total of 20 workers, citizens of third countries (non EEA), had not been registered for mandatory pension insurance before starting work by their employers.
Coordinated inspections of inspections by the State Inspectorate in the catering and tourism industry last until August the 31st, 2022.
