Romania has several employment laws and regulations that govern the relationship between employers and employees. The labor laws in Romania establish minimum standards for employment conditions, wages, and safety in the workplace, including for part time jobs. Therefore, employers are required to comply with these regulations.

This article will help you understand what the part-time employment contract involves, and also to know better your rights in the relationship with your employees or the employer, depending on which part you are on.

Any Romanian employer, whether a legal person or even a natural person, can hire full-time or part-time employees.

What does part time employment in Romania mean?

A part-time contract resumes to the number of hours worked, calculated weekly or monthly, being less than the normal number of hours worked by a full-time employee. Part-time employment contracts can be concluded both for an indefinite period, or for a fixed period. The individual part time employment contract is legally regulated in Romania by Art. 103 of the Labor Code.

As an employee, if you benefit or will benefit from a part-time employment contract, you will perform activities similar to a full-time employee, the only difference being the number of hours worked. The distribution of hours worked can be negotiated with the employer, and this aspect must be expressly mentioned in the employment contract.
