Labour Code to be changed

Parliament today will vote on 18 changes to the new Labour Code, including raising maximum weekly overtime from 48 hours to 58, and permitting the use of part-time contracts. The Code, which is to take effect April 1, had aroused harsh criticism from employers, who said it would raise their labour costs and make the labour market less flexible. The last-minute changes were agreed between the government, business and labour at a ‘tripartite’ meeting on March 18.
