Employment in Moldova

Employment in Moldova is conducted by means of a written employment contract. Individual labor contracts should be concluded in writing as well as collective labor contracts. The content of the individual labor contract is determined based on the agreement of the parties, in view of the current legislation.

The collective labor contract is the legal document that regulates the labor relations and other social relations in the entity, concluded in writing between the employee and employer by their representatives. Collective labor contracts can be concluded on the entity as a whole, as well as on its branches and representatives.

When the collective labor contract is concluded within one branch or representative of the entity, its party shall be the head of the respective subdivision, empowered by the employer for this purpose.
