Legally compliant employment of hostesses, promoters and students

Billing via trade license

The new Temporary Employment Act has been in force since 01.04.2017. Trade fair hostesses, promoters, event staff and service personnel must be employed and insured as employees.

The billing of personnel on a trade license now means = BLACK WORK

As the client, you are jointly responsible for ensuring that the agency you commission employs the temporary staff you have hired out to you in a legally compliant manner and that it is also in possession of a temporary employment permit. Being jointly responsible as the client means being jointly liable for the social security contributions to be paid (also retroactively) in the event of an audit by the social security authorities. 

  • Your company is legally considered an employer.
  • Your company is responsible and liable for correct working hours.
  • Your company is liable for social security contributions and wage tax.
  • As a managing director / board member, you are personally liable for any social security contributions not paid.
  • u. Possible criminal liability for the offense of illegal employment.

Therefore, only hire an agency that fulfills both requirements. With TRUST Promotion, you can play it safe.
