Entrepreneurs say Labour Code revision will drive up employers' costs

The Association of Slovak Entrepreneurs (ZPS) has announced its strong opposition to the Labour Code amendments that were approved in parliament on June 28, saying the new measures add significantly to employers' costs.

"The approved amendments cause a cost increase in most of their provisions," said ZPS president Ján Oravec.

Provisions increasing employers' costs include those on enhanced severance and paid-leave conditions. Oravec also complained that the amendments boost workers' protection and weaken employers through the changes to the laws concerning overtime work.

The ZPS also disagreed with more power being granted to unions, as employers will have to provide paid leave to union leaders.
