What are the common violations of labor law in Bulgaria and how to avoid them?

Violations of labor law in Bulgaria can take many forms, ranging from the lack of due benefits to non-compliance with the conditions of safety and health at work. Understanding and applying legal provisions is key to protecting workers' rights and ensuring that employers practice lawfully. Here are some of the most common violations and ways to avoid them:

  • Overtime work without the corresponding pay- Overtime work must be imposed only in exceptional cases and is subject to additional payment. Employers must organise the work process in such a way as to avoid the need for overtime and, where this is unavoidable, to ensure fair remuneration for their employees.
  • Failure to provide a lunch break- Employers are obliged to provide their employees with the necessary breaks during the working day, including lunch break, which cannot be less than 30 minutes. Working time management must take these requirements into account to ensure that workers' rights are respected.
  • Work during annual leave- Annual leave is intended for rest and restoration of working capacity. Employers should not require employees to perform work duties during their leave and must strictly comply with annual leave provisions.
  • Obligations not corresponding to the position- When concluding an employment contract, the employer is obliged to provide the employee with a job description that accurately determines the duties associated with the position. Any deviation from these duties without the consent of the employee is a violation of the law.
  • Work without a formally concluded employment contract- The conclusion of a written employment contract before the start of labor activity is a mandatory requirement. Employers must ensure that all employment contracts are duly registered and employees are made aware of their rights and obligations.
  • Lack of job description- The provision of a job description is mandatory at the conclusion of the employment contract. It forms the basis for the performance of labor functions and the rights and obligations of the employee.
  • Refusal to grant access to personal documents- Employees have the right to access their own employment documents. Employers must guarantee this right and provide the requested information within the established time limit.
  • Sending on a business trip without consent- Sending on a business trip for periods exceeding 30 days requires the written consent of the worker, except in cases specifically mentioned in the law.

These principles and precautions are designed to ensure the protection of workers' rights and to promote fair and lawful labour practices. It is important that employers and employees strive for open dialogue and cooperation in order to avoid potential disruptions and to create a healthy and productive work environment.

How to avoid these violations?

Awareness and transparency are key to avoiding labour law violations. Employers and employees should be aware of their rights and obligations and seek legal advice when necessary. Regular training and updating of knowledge on labor law can also contribute to the prevention of violations and the improvement of labor relations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be fired without notice in Bulgaria?

According to the Labor Code in Bulgaria, dismissal without notice is possible only in strictly defined cases, such as serious violations of labor discipline. In most situations, the employer is obliged to provide advance notice, the term of which depends on the length of the employee's service with the same employer.

What is overtime and how is it paid?

Overtime work includes any work performed outside the regulated working hours established by the employment contract. The law allows overtime work in limited cases, and its imposition requires the consent of the worker or a specific order in exceptional circumstances. Overtime is paid with an increase agreed between the parties, but not less than the established minimum percentages above the basic remuneration.

Can I terminate my employment contract without notice in the event of a salary delay by the employer?

Yes, in accordance with the Bulgarian labor legislation, the employee has the right to terminate his employment contract without notice if the employer has delayed the payment of wages for more than one month. According to the Labor Code, this constitutes a material breach of contractual obligations on the part of the employer, which gives grounds for the employee to be released from the employment relationship immediately, without having to comply with a notice period. It is important to note that in such circumstances, the worker may also be entitled to compensation for the termination of the employment contract, according to the conditions and procedures provided by law.
