On 10th of April, the Prime-minister, Mr. Pavel Filip chaired the meeting of the Economic Council’s Working Group on the amendment of the Labour Code.
FIA pointed out that the current draft law is a compromise, and underlined that it is essential to elaborate a new Labour Code, according to the best international practices, by involving foreign and local experts in the process, contracted with the help of development partners. The provisions of the current Labor Code give a greater role to the trade unions. It is desirable that the individual employment contract, which is a legal act, bilaterale, signed voluntarily by both parties to be at the basis of the labour relations (employer – employee).
The draft on the amendment of the Labour Code will be proposed for discussions within the national tripartite commission for public consultations, Government – Trade Unions – Employers. In parallel, the document will be submitted to competent institutions for approval.
