Controversial new Labour Code comes into effect as of May 2

The Labour Code will come into force as of Monday, May 2, 30 days after its publication in the Official Monitor, according to the provisions of the law, after the Constitutional Court ruled, in turn, that the new Labour Code was constitutional, denying the complaint filed by the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) and the National Liberal Party (PNL). “(…) While, in its past form, the Labour Code did not allow an employer who decided collective sackings to hire new employees in those positions for nine months, in its present form, the Code grants the employee made redundant by a collective sacking procedure a right of priority to being hired, on a 45 days-term,” the lawyer Stefan Boboc, a labour law specialist, explained, to “Jurnalul National”, arguing that the new law grants employees very few means to defend themselves from the employers’ abuses.
