Employers walk out of tripartite session

Representatives of employers walked out of a special session of the Social Partnership Council (HSR) that discussed a draft amendment to the law on social insurance.

The National Association of Employers (RUZ) and the Association of Employers of Slovakia (AZZZ) claim that tripartite rules were broken at the session, because Labour Minister Viera Tomanová did not allow them to present their proposal of how to solve the future deficits of Sociálna Poisťovňa.

Moreover, they said they fear that tripartite sessions in the future will serve only as a formal cloak for the Labour Ministry to prepare bad laws.

The employers have criticised the amendment to the law on social insurance, saying the draft is not accompanied by any analyses or impact studies.

Employers want to present their 20 proposed measures to the prime minister on August 21, because the Cabinet is to deal with the draft amendment on social insurance at its session on August 22.
