Labour Code to return to previous form

LABOUR legislation will probably return to its form from three years ago. The new cabinet wants to amend the existing Labour Code, currently appreciated by employers, in order to satisfy the unions.

The changes should result in making the dismissal of employees more difficult, restricting limited-period contract employment and generally strengthening the position of the unions, the Pravda daily wrote.

The changes in the Labour Code will be part of the new cabinet program. Before the elections Smer chairman and PM Robert Fico promised the unions to amend the Labour Code if elected. Employers and opposition parties do not agree with the amendments but new Labour Minister Viera Tomanová confirmed that she would prepare the changes.
