The law on encouragement of employment foresees that all redundant employees may be included in programmes for employment and employment measures. These workers are entitled to unemployment benefits, participation in schemes for retraining and use of General Labour Directorate services to find work. When conducting a collective redundancy, the employer is obliged to cooperate with the employment authorities in order to arrange the appropriate measures for administrative services (employment mediation, qualification courses, start-up support, employment programmes) to the affected employees and helping them to find employment or retraining.



The regulations of the law on encouragement of employment are in accordance with the Labour Code, Artli 130a  and the right of information and consultation in case of collective dismissals.
