Abstract/Citation: The 34 sections of these Regulations set forth the manner in which the system of engaging workers under contracts of employment is to be administered. This system is to be applied without exception to workers recruited for regular jobs within the labour and wage quotas set by the Government (s. 2). Workers engaged under such contracts shall enjoy the same rights as those of permanent workers already working in the enterprise in relation to employment and other matters (s. 3). The Regulations set forth the mandatory contents of a contract of employment (s. 8) and govern its amendment, substitution, termination or cancellation (Chap. III). The grounds on which a contract of employment may be terminated by the enterprise or the worker are spelled out (ss. 12-16); the trade union is to be consulted (s. 17). Chap. IV governs benefits of workers engaged under contracts of employment and Chap. VI concerns their retirement benefits. The Regulations also contain administrative provisions (Chaps. VI and VII). Entry into force 1 Oct. 1986.
