Slovenia -Draft labour market reform hails flexibilisation -September 4, 2012

A draft of the government’s labour market reform proposals that is to be discussed by the social partners has been made public. The plans include a new indefinite term contract that allows employers to end the employment relation without stated cause in the first five months and makes firing very easy for the first two years.

Polls show that a (small) majority of voters is both against the labour market and the pension reform.
