Labour code amendment ready

Labour Minister Ľudovít Kaník introduced a draft amendment to the labour code that relaxes employment rules and gives employers greater flexibility in hiring and firing workers.

The amendment allows workers to be hired on part-time contracts, doubles the possible probationary period before taking on workers on permanent contracts to six months, and increases the maximum overtime allowed.

The measure is to be sent to parliament in January 2003.
