Changes to the Labour Code

COMPANIES will be able to sign time-limited employment contracts with workers only for two years or less. After two years, employees must receive a permanent work contract. This stems from a revision to the Labour Code which President Ivan Gašparovič signed on December 16 that will become effective on March 1, 2010.

COMPANIES will be able to sign time-limited employment contracts with workers only for two years or less. After two years, employees must receive a permanent work contract. This stems from a revision to the Labour Code which President Ivan Gašparovič signed on December 16 that will become effective on March 1, 2010.

The current law capped time-limited working contracts to three years, the Pravda daily wrote.

Employers perceive the change as problematic and claim that it will worsen conditions for survival of companies during the economic crisis.

Also based on this same revision, employees who are working in a company via a personnel agency must receive the same wage as comparable employees working directly for that employer. Agency employees in some cases reportedly received hourly wages as much as 10 percent lower than regular employees of the same company.
