Employment Law in Romania: In-depth

Wednesday, September 22, 2021

A single item of legislation, the Labour Code (Codul muncii) — Law no. 53 of 24 January 2003, amended on numerous occasions since — governs most aspects of individual employment relationships. Separate statutes (mainly laws and Government ordinances) dealt with matters such as parenthood-related leave and benefits, sick leave, maternity protection, temporary agency work and teleworking. While the Labour Code regulates some areas of collective employment relations, the main legislation in this area is Law no. 62 of 10 May 2011 on social dialogue, while separate statutes deal with matters such as transfers of undertakings and employee information/consultation. Law no. 319 of 14 July 2006 is the principal item of legislation on health and safety at work, implemented by detailed Government Decisions and “methodological norms”. General legislation on equality and non-discrimination applies in the employment context. Case law interprets the Labour Code and other employment legislation.
