Lithuanian parliament to extend session in order to adopt Labour Code reform

Seimo rūmai
DELFI / Šarūnas Mažeika

Mr. Butkevičius said that “parliament members are registering quite a lot of amendments and it could take a considerable amount of time to discuss them in parliament. Therefore, the parliament speaker and I have decided to extend the parliamentary session until January 13, unless the entire social model package is adopted by Christmas.”

Mrs. Graužinienė says that because of the upcoming general elections next year, it will be impossible to adopt the new social model in the spring session.

Parliament started discussing the new social model, a package of laws meant to liberalize Lithuania’s Labour Code, in the middle of October. The new social model includes new regulation of labour relations and reform guidelines of the social insurance system.
