Slovenia -Social partners support more controls on job agencies -September 14, 2013

In the Economic and Social Council, both employers’ organisations and trade unions have expressed support for amendments to the labour market act, aimed at regulating job agencies. The amendment introduces new criteria for temping and recruitment agencies, which are supposed to avoid bogus constructions. Agencies will be obliged to conduct recruitment as their main activity, will have to be Slovenian or have fully fledged subsidiaries in Slovenia and will be required to have greater capital shares. Fines for abuse are increased.
