MP’s proposal to change layoff terms rejected by parliament

On February 9 the Slovak Parliament did not approve a draft proposal by MP Ľudovít Kaník (Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ)) to cancel the concurrent provision of a period of notice for layoff and severance pay for employees dismissed due to organisational reasons (for instance, cost-cutting which eliminated jobs and positions).

On February 9 the Slovak Parliament did not approve a draft proposal by MP Ľudovít Kaník (Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ)) to cancel the concurrent provision of a period of notice for layoff and severance pay for employees dismissed due to organisational reasons (for instance, cost-cutting which eliminated jobs and positions).

According to the MP’s proposal an employee would be entitled to choose between two months of severance pay or a two-month notice period, as was the case in the past. The Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, Jozef Mihál, urged lawmakers to reject Kaník's proposal, saying it was a significant change. “This should be discussed within the tripartite [social partners] and in an interdepartmental review,” Mihál said, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
