Law on the Conditions for Assigning Employees to Temporary Work Abroad and Their Protection

Law on the Conditions for Assigning Employees to Temporary Work Abroad and Their Protection


On 28th June 2018 National Assembly of Republic of Serbia rendered Law on amendments of Law on the conditions for assigning employees to temporary work abroad and their protection, which amendments came into force on 7th July 2018. Purpose of the amendments is to reduce bureaucratic procedure that employers must undergo during the process of assigning employees to work abroad. In that way, the whole process shall be easier and shorter, and performing business more effective, deprived of unnecessary and delaying steps.

Starting from 7th July 2018 employers can assign to work abroad only the employee who has been engaged at the employer for at least three months. Under prescribed conditions, assignment can also be done for the employee who has been engaged at the employer for a shorter period of time.

One of the additional novelties is that employer has to state the country in which employee is being assigned to work when changing the ground of insurance in the Central register of mandatory social insurance. 

Since all the relevant information regarding the process of assignment of employees to work abroad is available at the Central register of mandatory social insurance, employers no longer have the obligation of providing a separate notification to the competent ministry or informing the ministry in case of any relevant changes. Such information shall be obtained from the Central register of mandatory social insurance. 

In addition, provisions regarding certain misdemeanours have been changed in a way that the pecuniary fines have been increased from RSD 100.000 to RSD 150.000 for the company, i.e. from RSD 50.000 to RSD 70.000 for the entrepreneur
