WHAT ARE THE OPPORTUNITIES OF EASTERN EUROPEAN CAREERS LEGALLY EMPLOYED?

It is not surprising that many Germans prefer to be cared for in their own four walls instead of going to a nursing home or retirement home. However, if the care cannot be taken over by the relatives (place of residence, time, money and motivation), they often bring in an Eastern European supervisor. According to current estimates, around 180,000 men and women from Eastern Europe care for those in need of care in German households. So that these employment relationships are not illegal, you should get free advice from HomeLife on the one hand and pay attention to the following things on the other. A distinction is made here between the posting of a person working abroad and a care aid provided by the employment office or the ARGE.

SENDING A PERSON EMPLOYED ABROAD

According to the EU freedom to provide services according to §56 TFEU, it is permitted for Eastern European companies to offer their own services in other EU countries. This was adopted with the eastward expansion of the EU and thus legalized. This means that Eastern European service companies can send their own workers (legally and subject to social security in their home country), but it must be taken into account that the hourly wage of EUR 8.50 and ancillary wage costs also apply to “posted” European nurses in private households. Therefore, more and more work as legally self-employed. to place orders for domestic help and nursing aids in Germany. Among other things, these must provide evidence of valid and necessary certificates, such as a valid health insurance. This applies to the self-employed as well as to an employee of the service company.

EASTERN EUROPEAN CAREERS CAN OPERATE IN A HOME-REGISTERED BUSINESS.

The objection of bogus self-employment could only be raised for these women if they were to work for a long time only with one and the same client, and at HomeLife we ​​even go one step further when it comes to maximum care quality for their relatives. All of our Eastern European helpers will be replaced by a fresh nurse after 3 months at the latest in order to relax at home and regain motivation and strength.

ONLY BLACK WORK IS CHEAPER

It is also possible that the already existing widespread undeclared work will increase again due to the new regulations. Black is available to a caregiver through private contacts for as little as € 1,200 a month – without any security for women and care households
