Fico: Labour Code a key law in 2007

THE KEY piece of legislation to be introduced in 2007 will be a revision to the Slovak Labor Code, according to PM Robert Fico, who would like to see it return to its form prior to changes under previous right-wing labour ministers Ľudovít Kaník and Iveta Radičová.

Fico said that the planned changes would concern the rules for firing employees, the maximum length of the work week, and workplace safety.

"We want a standard European Labour Code that will balance the relationship between employees and employers. Our current Labour Code is considered the third most liberal in the world, and we have to change that. Slovakia is not in Latin America but in the center of Europe," the PM said.
