New Regulations on Foreign Non-Resident Workers

2017-05-15

Presidential Decree no. 43/17 of 6 March, establishes the new Regulations on Foreign Non-Resident Workers Engaging in Professional Activities (the "Regulations") and repeals Decrees no. 5/95 of 7 April and no. 6/01 of 19 January.

The main change introduced by the new legislation is the application of an absolute ratio of 70% - 30%. Employers are now under an obligation to maintain the maximum ration of 30% in relation to non-resident foreign workers. The new limitation also eliminates the possibility of an exemption from the rule through the Ministry of Public Administration, Employment and Social Security. The 70% - 30% ratio is therefore now absolute.
