Is an employer allowed to let a migrant worker work without a citizen service number (part II)?
On 25 November 2022, the NOS published an article about three asylum seekers who gave the IND (the immigration and naturalization service) an ultimatum to issue a BSN (the citizen service number). In that article, the asylum seekers (wrongly) assumed that the IND is in charge of that and that it isn’t allowed to work in the Netherlands without a BSN. In this blog series, we will explain how a migrant worker can work in the Netherlands without a BSN. In our second blog, we discuss the question of how to deal with an employee without a BSN for tax purposes.
