  • The Employment Service of Slovenia (ESS) will grant approval for single permit holders in the private sector to change employers, jobs, or work for multiple employers
  • Eligible asylum seekers can exercise their right to free access to the Slovenian labor market after three months of being granted asylum seeker status, as opposed to the current requirement of nine months stated in the Law on Employment, Self-employment, and Work of Foreigners

The government also introduced new measures aimed at protecting posted workers:

  • Regulate the issuance of A1 certificates for employees and self-employed individuals working in at least two EU member states
  • Establish an electronic record-keeping system

Measures under the act go into effect on January 1, 2024.
