The official transition to electronic employment records begins

On October 29, 2018, a public discussion of the draft law on electronic epmloyment records started. Electronic employment records will replace paper ones from January 1, 2021.

The draft law provides that information about the employee’s work activity is generated by the employer and transferred to the Pension Fund only in electronic form. The employers’ statements will include information contained in the current eployment record, with the exception of information about education and awards (incentives). Accordingly, information system will include information about the work activities of each employee.

Employers will keep electronic information about the work activities of each employee, not only during their work in the organization, but for three years after the dismissal. Upon dismissal, the employer will provide the employee with printed and certified information about his employment in the organization. The employee will be able to present this information to another employer when entering into an employment contract.
