Introduction 

I imagine that your email box, like mine, has been especially full that last couple of weeks, all because of the implementation of GDPR. Even as we enjoy warm sunshine to bask in, the law is changing and causing both users and providers to deal with a new set of rules. So it is with the law—it never sits still. Fortunately, as we note in our first piece, we have lawyers like Christiana Fernbach who can help guide us through this change. (If only she couldmanage all of those new emails!) And, lest you think it’s all GDPR, we’re looking at changes in labor law and pharmaceuticals, among other things. But still, do spend some time basking in the sunshine!

LEGAL UPDATES

 

REAL ESTATE

The cadastre law – new amendments for agricultural and infrastructure development

Effective April 23, 2018, amendments enacted to the cadastre (land records) law will bring significant changes in practical matters of agricultural and infrastructure development. A lack of complete records of real estate affects economic development by cultivating a climate of uncertainty for investment and creating social ambivalence. 

 

EMPLOYMENT AND LABOUR

Changes to the Labour Code

A new law that recently amended the Labour Code, requires employers to conclude and register employment labour agreements at the authorities, no later than the day before the employee starts work. The amendment changes the deadline by which an employer must conclude and register the employment labour agreement. 

Changes to the law governing work performed by daily labourers

The law that regulates occasional work performed by daily labourers has been amended. Under the new amendments, occasional work can be performed by daily labourers in the following new domains: hotels and other accommodation facilities, children’s camps, restaurants, and bars or other eating and/or drinking establishments.
