Remarks:
  • Art. 53 of the Labour Code

Notice period:
Remarks:
  • Art. 53 of the Labour Code states that the notice period shall be one month unless otherwise provided for in the collective agreement.

    However, each of the grounds for contract termination outlined in Article 52 LC has its own procedure outlined in Article 53. One month notice is not applicable to all of the grounds. Notice period varies from 10 calendar days to 15 working days to 1 month. Some instances do not indicate on notice period (e.g. medical conditions, grounds for alcoholics).

    Pay in lieu of notice: No

    Remarks:
    • Art. 53 of the Labour Code states that with the written consent of the worker the termination can be made effective before the expiration of the notice period.

      Again not applicable to all situations (see above 'notice period').

    Notification to the public administration: No

    Notification to workers' representatives: No

    Remarks:
    • Update as of 2016: Article 18 (2) of the Trade Union Law provides that the trade union can submit an opinion regarding the termination of the contract of its members.

    Approval by public administration or judicial bodies: No

    Approval by workers' representatives: No
