Croatia -Labour law reform announced -January 24, 2014

The government presented draft amendments to the Labour Act to the parliament which provide a shorter and simpler procedure for lay-offs. The amendments shorten the notice periods so that the notice will not run during paid holidays or leaves of absence. Notice periods will not run during a worker's sick leave, but a notice expires six months from the date of the notice. As for the arrangement of work hours, a week can consist of 56-60 work hours, but the monthly work hours cannot be higher than the result of the number of weeks in that month multiplied by 40 hours.
