SERBIA: Working in the State of Emergency

A new Regulation on The State of Emergency of the Republic of Serbia (Official Gazette / Sl. Glasnik no. 31/2020, 16 March 2020) mandates that employers undertake measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.

These measures include putting in place working-from-home arrangements for their staff, and, where work processes require that staff be physically present at work premises, ensuring that hygienic and technical measures are in place to prevent the spread of the disease (such as limiting the number of people working from the same room; use of protective masks, etc.).

Where the staff continue to work from the office, strict mandates will be in place to ensure sure that all measures of work health and safety are observed.

Where staff is working from home and the process of working from home is not defined by general agreement or work contract, specific fit-for-purpose regulations must be developed to administer the process of working from home (by specifying working hours, supervision arrangements and processes whereby registers of staff working from home would be established and maintained).

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need information on the implementation of the Regulation on the State of Emergency or support preparing the necessary documentation.

As a result of lifting the state of emergency in the Republic of Serbia on 6 May 2020, this Regulation is no longer effective. Find out more here
