Labour code to be amended

LABOUR Minister Ľudovít Kaník has proposed to amend a controversial labour code by next spring so that employees will be allowed to work more overtime hours and to sign part-time work contracts, despite protests from unions.

The current labour code was changed this year to cancel part-time work contracts, cap overtime hours and require workers at all companies to elect a representative in what critics called a misguided attempt to bring Slovak labour law in line with European standards.
