Clandestine work can be defined as having a sole or secondary gainful non-casual occupation that is carried out in violation of provisions set by legislation. Remunerated work which is not protected through contributions to the social security system should be considered clandestine.
Despite lack of clear statistical evidence, it can be assumed that a large majority of women fall into this category. Efforts should therefore be made to ensure that social security contributions are compulsory for each dependent worker and in all sectors.
