We should investigate workers in municipalities where they allow impersonation by cheap labour.

Can we use "allowing" instead of " where they allow"? If yes, do we need any additional word before "allowing".

It means that we replace ourselves with some other cheap worker for the sake of attendance.

Why would you replace yourself with a cheaper worker? You'd be doing yourself out of a job!

You can use allowing but I think the sentence is clearer with where they allow or possibly which allow.

This is not so. I will replace myself with some cheap worker and I will work at some other place where I will earn more. First one is government job where my name will be continue for social benefits.
