Also, in the meantime, new regulations in the field of labor were passed (Law on Agency Employment, Law on Seasonal Employment, Law on Dual Education, Law on Employment of Foreigners, Law on Product Safety) to which this Law must be adjusted, and new circumstances such as the COVID-19 virus need to be addressed (work from home, remotely).
