New modifications are to be operated on the Labour Code. The bill, obtained by Mediafax, stipulates the reduction of the legal uninterrupted leave which the employer has to grant each employee, when the said leave is scheduled in instalments, from 15 to 10 days. At the same time, the required notice that a resigning employee has to give will be extended from maximum 15 days to at least 20 workdays for employees in lower positions and 30 to 45 days for those in executive positions. Furthermore, the amount of overtime work which can be compensated for by paid hours off will be extended from 30 to 60 days and the trial time in which the employee’s skills are put to the test will also be longer. The time which an individual employment contract on a definite period can cover is extended to three years, and such a contract can be prolonged after its expiration, is stipulated in the bill. On the other hand, employees working in units where there are no representative trade unions will be able to negotiate their collective labour contract.
