Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article analyzes the recent changes to the Lithuanian labour law aimed at liberalising labour market and easing the burden of labour law for employers. Despite the great ambitions of the new right-centre Government, the Amendments of 2009 to the Labour Code represent a rather moderate attempt to bring in some flexibility in work organisation and employment. However, the temporary nature of amendments, the shift of the weight of regulation to social partners rather than to parties to the individual contract indicate that the more drastic measures of liberalisation were not accepted at this stage. Among other initiatives that failed was the facilitation of part-time work and fixed-term employment, unrestricted possibility to terminate the contract of employment or reduction of the level of social benefits in the event of dismissal. The Amendments of 2010 were more far-reaching. The lifting of the restrictions on overtime and flexible arrangments of working time, a limited introduction of fixed-term contracts were possible to achieve because of the strategy of negotiations and social dialogue. The 'bargaining over legislation' with all social partners involved seems to become the new model reshaping the national labour law in the future. Since the national law remains quite rigid and restrictive, the Government and employers will still be looking for new changes. The author argues that the new types of protection and new modern rights shall be proposed for the trade unions and workers in exchange of liberalization measures. [From the publication]
