Economic and Social Council reaches agreement on 80 proposals

People working via agreements will not have the right to take holidays since it will not be legally manageable if one person works via several agreements, it was concluded on Monday, August 20, during the Economic and Social Council (tripartite) session.

People working via agreements will not have the right to take holidays since it will not be legally manageable if one person works via several agreements, it was concluded on Monday, August 20, during the Economic and Social Council (tripartite) session.

Notwithstanding this unresolved issue, the tripartite – government, unions and employers’ representatives – managed to reach a consensus on various proposals involving the new Labour Code. From a total of 91 proposed changes, the Economic and Social Council found consensus on 80, Labour Minister Ján Richter informed the TASR newswire after the session.

The tripartite could not agree, however, on the issue of a new definition of 'dependent work'. No changes will be introduced in terms of the parallel notice period and severance payment, and employees working for one employer for less than two years will not have the right to severance payment. Furthermore, representatives of the Trade Union Confederation (KOZ) proposed increasing the benefit for overtime work by five percent. This proposal, too, was turned down by The Association of Employers Unions (AZZZ) and the Republican Union of Employers (RÚZ) representatives, and therefore was not accepted by the Labour Ministry, said Richter.
