Romania -Parliament discussing employer subsidies to hire young workers -October 06, 2015

Parliament is discussing a youth employment policy that would subsidize employers who hire young people without work experience. Under the plan, employers have to employ workers under the age of 30 on indefinite contracts to qualify for a subsidy of one time the gross minimum wage and an exemption from social security payments on the particular employee for the first 18 months. Employers will have to keep the young workers on for at least 36 months, or risk having to pay back the subsidies.
