The Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family has submitted its proposed amendment to the Labour Code for ministerial comments, it was announced on Tuesday, March 8, in Bratislava.
The move was preceded by a number of meetings of a working group made up of ministry representatives, employers and trade unionists. "This amendment was drafted with an eye towards increasing the flexibility of labour relations, reducing the excessive administrative and financial burden on employers, as well as supporting motivation for creation of new jobs, and allowing the harmonisation of working life [and family life] for parents," reads the amendment, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
The proposal introduces a new notice period ranging from one to five months depending on the number of years an employee has worked for a company, and the cancellation of simultaneous notice period and severance payment.
