FIA was nominated as a member of a new Working Group, that was set up to be in charged with the drafting of a new Labor Code, for the purpose of ensuring a modern regulation of employment relationships, establishing a better balance between the rights and the responsibilities of related parties in these relations, and for supporting the Government’s initiated reforms in other fields as well.
FIA has permanently pointed out the necessity to have a modernized Labor Code – as a precondition for a more efficient and competitive economy. The importance of this subject for FIA is confirmed also by the fact that the largest chapter of the White Book (WB) was dedicated to the labor regulations.
The first meeting of the WG on Labor Code was held on 10th of November, where it was agreed on focusing on the identification of major amendments that will positively impact the activity of the enterprises. The members of the WG shall discuss their recommendations and proposals within the WG. Consequently, an opinion might be asked from the International Labor Organization (ILO).
