Abstract/Citation: Enacts the codified text of the civil law. The text of the Civil Code is attached. Title XVI (sections 2512-2697) sets out ground rules regarding the conditions of formation, execution and termination of contracts of employment and enumerates the rights and obligations of the parties with regard to work, wages, safety precautions and holidays. The section also contains special provisions on contracts for particular kinds of work (apprenticeship, trial periods, domestic servants, agricultural work) hiring for intellectual work, medical or hospital contracts, contracts of innkeepers and publishing contracts. The Code survived the revolutionary regime of 1994-1991 and remains in force relatively unamended.
