Bulgaria: Social Ministry, Trade Unions, Employers To Discuss Leave Rules Photo: BGNES

Bulgaria's Social Ministry will propose three options for changes to the rules for taking paid annual leave, reports bTV.

Under the current rules, by the end of the current year all companies must pencil in a schedule for employees' paid annual leave for the next year. Furthermore, employees cannot transfer more than 10 days' paid leave to the next year, thus accumulating leave, which by law must be paid by the employer if the worker leaves the company, is laid off, or retires. 

The business wants that the small and medium companies be exempt from the schedule requirement. 

The trade unions want the cancellation of the ban on transferring paid leave, while the business wants it to remain. The government, however, is willing to discuss changes to this rule. 

All proposals are to be discussed by the trilateral committee of representatives of the business, the trade unions and the employers.
