Employment Contracts – New Legal Templates
Presidential Decree 40/17, of 6 March 2017Summary
: This new act of legislation entered into effect on the date of publication by the Official Gazette, and enacts the following two draft employment contracts:i)
Permanent employment contract; and
ii) Fixed-term employment contract.
These draft employment contracts are in line with the main principles of the General Labour Law and constitute mere guidelines and thus, are not mandatory.
The use of these guidelines must be carefully assessed and considered as they do not reflect several specific and concrete features of employment contracts.
All legislation contrary to this new diploma is revoked, namely the Executive Decree 80/01 of 28 December 2001.
