After President Kiska vetoed an amendment to the Labour Code, which could make the conditions for temporary employment stricter, the parliament overrode this veto. The president was objecting to, among other things, what he said were inappropriately evaluated impacts of the changes on employment and job creation taken into consideration the opinion of employers who fear the inappropriate increase in their costs and the bureaucracy. The amendment introduces the so-called shared responsibility principle. This means that temporary employees must earn the same salary as regular employees if they both do the same work. If a temporary employee earns less, the agency would have to pay the difference from its own budget.
