The Business Community Opposes the Submission to the National Assembly of the Uncoordinated Proposals in the Amendment to the Labour Relations Act

In today's letter addressed to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Dr Robert Golob, and the relevant ministers, the representatives of the business community, united in a joint initiative of 15 economic, employers' and agricultural organisations, have clearly expressed our common disappointment and dissatisfaction with the way in which the amendment to the Labour Relations Act (ZDR-1D) was adopted by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia on 19 October 2023. At a joint meeting on 9 October 2023, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia gave a briefing to all the Presidents of economic, employers' and agricultural organisations on the continuation and content of the adoption of the amendment to this law. The draft amendment adopted by the Government contradicts this promise.
