On July 1, 2020, the new Law on Administrative Liability (hereinafter - AAL) will come into force with amendments to the Labor Law supplementing the Labor Law with a new Part E - Administrative Liability for Violations in Labor Relations. It will list possible violations and penalties, as well as the officials of the authority who may carry out the administrative proceedings for these violations).
