President and minister discuss Labour Code amendments

Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič met with Labour, Social Affairs and Family Minister Viera Tomanová to discuss the amendment to the Labour Code on April 10, reported the president's spokesman, Marek Trubač.

Trubač said the president will either endorse the amendment by signing it or express his disapproval by returning it to be worked out further.

Tomanová said she does not expect there will be complications in finalising the amendment.

"We suppose that after the Economic and Social Council's session on April 12, there will be three or four important problems remaining (to sort out) out of a total of 17 items (that are being debated for amendment)."
