- Labor Legislation under Review. The Prime Minister has requested the creation of a new Working Group with participation of the Ministry of Labor, Ministry of Economy, business associations, Labor Unions and other relevant stakeholders.

The mission of the Working Group is to collectively elaborate amendments to the Labor Code aimed at ensuring a modern regulation of employment relationships, as well as establishing a better balance between the parties.

AmCham will use this opportunity to continue its long lasting effort of improving labor legislation for the benefit of business community. Elena Buzu has actively collected proposals from AmCham members to be submitted for the review and debates within the WG. On Friday, November 25, the second meeting of the WG was held.

Should you have any additional ideas on this matter, we are always open to it.
