Labour Act 93/2014, 127/17
During the notice period, the employee is entitled to be absent from work for at least four hours a week for the purpose of seeking new employment. Employees are entitled to be paid for this time off. The law does not specify or exempt any particular groups of workers, so it can be deemed that all workers have this right. There is no specific provision for part-time workers.
It is a general regulation, not specific to collective dismissals. This provision applies even if the worker has terminated the employment contract.
The law does not specify what is considered as 'seeking new employment' and there are no specific provisions on the use of time off for training; the practice may differ from one employer to another.
