Parliament passes new labour law

The Slovak parliament yesterday passed an amendment to the labour code, reducing the maximum working week to 48 hours.

As a compromise to the Christian Democrats' opposition to including anti-discrimination legislation, the law also forbids employers to ask the sexual orientation of their employees.

The bill was supported by coalition MPs as well as some members of the opposition Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) and independent MPs.
