More discord over draft amendment to Labour Code

The Federation of Employers' Associations of the Slovak Republic (AZZZ) is not satisfied with the outcome of a tripartite discussion on Monday, April 18, on changes to the Labour Code, AZZZ Vice President Rastislav Machunka told the SITA newswire.

"The tabled amendment to the Labour Code does not come up to our expectations," he said. He pointed out that the Labour Ministry had abandoned its intention to omit the so-called minimum wage entitlements from the Labor Code which was one of the employers' requirements. These represent different levels of minimum hourly wage depending on the level of work qualifications required. He also said that employers failed to push through their demand that employers should no longer need approval from the Labour Office to lay off a severely disabled person. AZZZ also disapproves of the five-month notice period for people employed by the same company for more than 20 years. Machunka opined that a four-month period after employment of ten or more years would suffice.

The unions, on the other hand, want to take their protests to the streets, the Sme daily wrote. They appear to object to the new definition of dependent work and probation periods.
