Refugee Labour Kit

We have created a new information package for refugees and foreigners living in Slovakia, which contains useful information about employment in Slovakia.
Dear clients,

This site is intended primarily to provide you with all the necessary information you should know about working in Slovakia. Interviews with several of you have shown that you often do not know the fundamental rights guaranteed to you as employees by law. Such information is usually only available in Slovak and is often presented in a complicated way, which motivated us to prepare an information package on employment, which would cover all necessary areas of employment, as well as possible discrimination or exploitation in the workplace. In addition to the Slovak language, we have prepared information on employment in the other four most frequently represented languages among refugees: English, Arabic, Pashto and Farsi. We hope that they will be useful for you in the process of looking for work and employment in Slovakia.

The information pack consists of three animated informative videos that cover the areas of illegal work and illegal employment, employment, employee rights and advice on how to proceed if you have problems at work in a concise and simple way. These topics and many more are explained in more detail in four thematic presentations, which can be downloaded below.
