Based on Art­icle 75 of the Em­ploy­ment Re­la­tion­ship Act (ZDR-1), the pro­vi­sions on the trans­fer of an un­der­tak­ing (change of em­ploy­er) then ap­ply. The art­icle gov­erns the joint and sev­er­al li­ab­il­ity of both the trans­fer­or and trans­fer­ee com­pany; how­ever, it lim­its li­ab­il­ity solely to the claims of em­ploy­ees who were ac­tu­ally trans­ferred.

The new world of work in Slov­e­nia
As a res­ult of COV­ID-19 and meas­ures put in place in re­sponse to the pan­dem­ic, coun­tries around the world – in­clud­ing Slov­e­nia – had to ad­apt their or­gan­isa­tions in the area of em­ploy­ment in a bid to keep their work­ers safe and pro­duct­ive. The most com­mon way was re­sort­ing to the in­stru­ment of work from home. Now, more than a year after the pan­dem­ic began, , many be­lieve home-of­fice work will be­come a fix­ture of our post-pan­dem­ic fu­ture. But re­mote work raises a host of leg­al and ad­min­is­trat­ive chal­lenges. This page – based on the 16 March 2021 we­bin­ar The Fu­ture is Now: The New World of Work in Slov­e­nia and hos­ted by la­bour law ex­pert Amela Žrt with CMS Slov­e­nia – ex­plores the im­pact of home­work­ing in Slov­e­nia for both work­ers and com­pan­ies. Read the art­icle, listen to the pod­cast and watch we­bin­ar re­cord­ing on this top­ic be­low.
