ROMANIA – Employers Must Obtain Labour Market Approval Before Hiring Foreign Workers

A new ordinance adopted by the Romanian Government enters into force on Friday 28 November 2014. The ordinance establishes the need for a labour market approval in some cases and emphasises the need for compliance with the labour code and reporting responsibilities.

Be aware that there will likely be delays in the processing of employment authorisations for Romania from 28 November 2014, when this ordinance takes effect.
