Slovenia -Stronger limitations on temporary and agency work -March 5, 2013

On 5 March a law passed to make temporary work more expensive, and therefore less attractive, for employers. Currently, workers in the same position for 2 years must be given an on-going employment contract. The new law means that an employer cannot have a position that is temporary for more than 2 years, regardless of how many people have occupied that position. If the employer does not convert the position to permanent after a 2 year period, severance pay must be paid to the worker. The second legal change introduces a quota for agency work. Temporary agency work must now not exceed 25 per cent of an employer’s total workforce.
