On Tuesday, 18 July 2017, the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS) Viitorul in partnership with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES Moldova) organized a public debate on the amendments to the Labour Code of the Republic of Moldova initiated by the Government.
The debate highlighted the fact that the draft law has multiple social risks, while certain amendments could directly and negatively affect vulnerable groups of citizens and certain categories of employees such as young specialists, employees with children aged between 3 and 6, pensioners, etc. In the experts' view, certain changes could lead to abuses by employers, job insecurity, and encourage informal work.
A broad analysis of the impact and social effects of the amendments to the Labour Code can be downloaded here.
