  • Establishment of  an employment relationship;
  • Types of employment agreements;
  • Annex to the employment agreement;
  • Resignation of employees;
  • Working hours and the right to rest;
  • Right on compensation;
  • Protection of employees’ rights;
  • Disciplinary responsibility;
  • Maternity and parental leave;
