Once a company takes the decision to hire people in Romania, there should be a few essential steps of the hiring process, in terms of legal conditions, to be observed.
So, one day before the new employee starts his activity, any company must register the labor contract of the new team member in Revisal, application created by the Labor Territorial Inspectorate (ITM). The process is not a complicated one – the company will need an account, user and password, in order to submit all the requested documents in legal time.
Before the new employee starts working, must be medically examined and able to work. In addition, the new employee should never start working without having a labor contract.
The employer and the employee must consider other legal provisions too. Thus, the maximum working days are 5 / week and the maximum probationary period cannot be longer than 90 days for the executive positions. In addition, a labor contract on a determined period should never be signed for more than 36 months, except in some conditions provided by law.
Regarding the minimum gross wage, it should never be under 1250 lei. The employer has the obligation to pay certain contributions like social security, health insurance, medical leave, unemployment contribution, accident risk fund and guarantee fund. On the other hand, the employee will also pay social security, health insurance, unemployment contribution and tax on income.
