Labour Code; Law of encouragement of employment
The employer is obliged to provide conditions for maintaining and improving the employees’ professional qualifications for the efficient performance of their duties under the employment relationship in compliance with the requirements of the performed work and their future professional development. Plans are developed in cooperation with the national employment agency. The employer is responsible for providing vocational training and upgrading employees' professional skills, especially for those who return to work after a long absence.
This subject can also be covered by collective bargaining agreements and some multi-annual plans of employment and skills development can be found in some collective agreements.
In order to meet the requirements of Article 228a and Article 228b of the Labour Code, it is necessary, in the event of an employment relationship, that the employer has handed to the employee the job description, as well as an annual plan for training, qualification and re-qualification, which determines the need for staff and through which to give orientation about the time of training and organisational, technical and financial provision.
