Employers walk out of insurance talks

Employer representatives walked out of a special Social Partnership Council session on the draft amendment to the social insurance law.

The National Association of Employers (RÚZ) and the Association of Employers of Slovakia (AZZZ) claim that tripartite rules were broken at the session, because Labour Minister Viera Tomanová did not let them present their proposal of how to solve the future deficits of the state insurer, 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 SITA newswire reported.

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