A new type of civil law contract comes in live. Green light from the president.

The president has signed a law on aid for harvest, which introduces a new type of civil law contract and health and accident insurance for seasonal workers – the President’s Office said on Wednesday. It is about the amendment of the act on social insurance of farmers and certain other acts adopted on 13 April 2018.

The new regulations create a new type of civil law contract, „collections aid agreement” which will eliminate employees working without a contract or concluding works contracts, which do not reflect the nature of help with harvesting, but most important work contracts are not covered by insurance. An agreement with a farmer’s assistant may be concluded for 180 days.
