The Nové Zámky district registers 335 job openings. At the end of January, the number of registered job seekers reached 6,100. The unemployment rate was 8.31 percent.

The clothing company Sariana Slovensko (formerly Trikota), based in Šaľa, decided to shut down its production of underwear and lay off all 120 employees. “Employees signed agreements to terminate their job contracts, which are not deemed an organizational reason, thus these will not be mass layoffs,” said the spokeswoman for the local labour office, adding that the office filed a motion to investigate whether the company had violated the law by handling the situation in this way.
