Definition of ‘dependent work’ still problematic

The definition of 'dependent work' is still a point of contention in the discussion on the Labour Code amendment, Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Minister Viera Tomanová said on April 16.

According to Vice-Minister Emília Kršíková, talks on the issue should continue today. The Labour Code amendment will be dealt with by the cabinet at its session on April 18.

Although the government and the representatives of employers seem to be starting to agree, the National Union of Employers Vice-President Jozef Špirko remains sceptical. He claimed that the definition of dependent work proposed by the ministry should be extended in order to prevent a situation where the state could force entrepreneurs to sign a regular work contract against their will.

Špirko further says that the ministry wants to propose an amendment with many contradictions, and therefore it's not possible to say at the moment in what form the amendment will eventually be passed.
