Darbo kodeksas Nr. XII-2603
Labour code No XII-2603
During the notice period, the employee can request and must be given at least 10% of the former standard working hours to look for a new job, during which the employee retains her remuneration. If the parties agree on more than 10%, payment for the additional part of the working time is decided by mutual agreement.
The labour code does not provide for differences between individual and collective dismissals as well as between full-time and part-time employees. Thus, time off for job search should be given in all the mentioned cases (at least 10% of the former working time).
