Slovenia - Labour reform agreed - June 30, 2017

The government reached a deal with social partners to change the labour market regulation act and the labour inspection act. The 3rd piece of the package, changes to the employment relationship act, is expected to be agreed with social partners before the summer break. The bills state that an employment contract must be concluded for work that contains all elements of an employment relationship. Since this does not happen many times, the law stipulates that an inspector can order an employer to offer such a worker a contract within three days. Moreover, changes give the Inspectorate powers in case of non-payment of wages.
