The Ministry of Labour and Pension System announced earlier in 2014 proposals to modify working time legislation that will make internal organisation of work easier for employers (see our February and March Newsletters). The aim is to help them cut operating costs by being able to respond quickly to short-term fluctuations in orders. The ministry also wants changes to the current rules on severance payments so that all workers, including employees on the fixed-term contracts, have the right to severance pay. It hopes that the changes will stimulate job creation, and the proposals are now being discussed in Parliament. Employers approved the initiative, but trade unions want to keep mechanisms that guarantee automatic pay increases and set out comprehensive safeguards against dismissal.
