More Labour Law Changes Needed
In an opinion for daily Danas published on December 1, HR Committee President Dejan Jecmenica told that the new Labour Law brought significant improvements, but that further changes are still needed.
"We would outline that there are still problems remaining to be resolved - staff leasing is still not regulated, extended application of collective agreements is not fully abolished, while the issue of the way of calculation of salaries during vacation and sick live is not yet resolved in a satisfying way", he said. As main improvements, HR Committee President cited extension of fixed term contract, calculation of severance payment only for the time spent by the last employer and restrictions for the extended application of the branch collective agreements. "However, passing of the new modernized Labour Law should be followed by the consistent implementation. Only this way the state will ensure level playing field for all participants in the market", Dejan Jecmenica said. HR Committee President concluded that the Law brought concrete steps forward, although it's too early to talk about the concrete results.
