The measure received 36 percent of the vote, the SITA newswire reported on October 17.

Companies attending the second year of the competition, which took place between August 5 and October 17, said that since they have to pay the health transfers for employees working “na dohodu”, it is not only a financial burden, but also administrative catastrophe, according to SITA.
