A legislative proposal regarding the EU Directive on Transparent and Predictable Employment Conditions has recently been approved and will come into effect on the 1st August 2022.

Most significant changes concern:

  2. Mandatory training free of charge for employee
  3. No ban on ancillary activities unless justified by an objective reason
  4. Request by employee for more predictable and secure employment conditions
