Labour Code amendment to protect employees

The government approved the amendment to the Labour Code drafted by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and the Family on April 18.

The amendment will now be passed on to parliament.

The amendment, according to the ministry, brings the Labour Code in line with the law of the European Union. Among other things, it restricts back-to-back extension of fixed-period employment contracts. The objective of the measure is to encourage the creation of permanent jobs.
