Daniel Cirstea quoted on the trade unions plans to change the labour code

Daniel Cirstea, partner and head of our labour law department, was quoted by Business Review on the subject of amending the labour legislation that was modified only a year and a half ago.

Daniel Cirstea said the labor legislation was changed to create a more flexible relationship between employers and employees, to the benefit of both categories.

The result of the legislative changes undertaken in 2011 is difficult to evaluate, as the labor market is affected by many factors, but, what can be said in all certainty is that too many changes in a short period of time cannot produce positive effects,” said Cirstea.

He added that BNS wants to see the Labor Code reverted to its pre-2011 form, which is more rigid and offers fewer levers for the employers. Cirstea said the fiscal and legislative instability is one of the main hindrances that companies face when doing business in Romania.
