Kovac: Staff Leasing Regulation Needed

In an opinion in daily Danas published on May 3, HR Committee Vice President Mirko Kovač pleaded for regulation of the staff leasing and explained it is in the interest for both companies and employees, and would also mean harmonizing with the EU and International Labour Organization (ILO).

’’We in the Council and me personally think it should surely be in line with the International Labour Organization and the EU documents (having in mind the obligation to harmonize the Serbian legislation with the EU during the accession negotiations), i.e. in the spirit of the ‘flexicurity’ principle”, Kovac stated in the text. HR Committee Vice President stated that the dilemma whether the staff leasing should be regulated or not doesn’t exit, supporting this claim by saying this concept exists since the end of the 19th century, and was tackled several times by the EU and International Labour Organization. It is outlined that Serbia has the obligation to regulate staff leasing after having ratified the last ILO convention on the private employment agencies in 2013. The last EU regulation was passed in 2008 in a Directive on temporary agency work, which promotes new principle of flexicurity, meaning right balance between the flexibility of the labour market and security of the employees with such contract. Even unregulated, staff leasing exists in practice in Serbia, so its banning would be detrimental to workers engaged this way as they would lose their jobs. “Companies members of FIC align their operations with the positive laws of Serbia, and therefore look forward the end of the activities of the Work Group and passing the regulation which would regulate the engagement through agencies for temporary employment“, Mirko Kovac outlined, saying FIC expects to be given the opportunity to participate in the consultations on this draft legislation.
