Part-time Employment Approved

Congress approved for 36 months, a law allowing companies to hire part-time staff, despite opposition from labor unions.

The opinion has advanced substantially, with some modifications, said Congressman German Leitzelar, coordinator of the commission to “socialize” with the unions, sponsored by the National Congress president, Juan Hernández.

The initiative was admitted to the full Legislature last week as part of the National Employment Anti-Crisis Outreach, a project known as the Temporary Employment Act (or per hour).

The discussion of this initiative was postponed several times due to rejection by the trade unions, who have been forced to return to the negotiating table, because the International Labor Organization, ILO, issued a favorable opinion that is was not a violation of Honduran Labor Code or international treaties.
