The draft labor law discussed by the House of Representatives indicates six violations that allow private employers to impose disciplinary penalties on workers.

One is keeping a work document for themselves or allowing others to acquire it or leaking work data to outsiders. Second is working for competitors.

Third is opening a business or being a partner in another enterprise that competes with the employer.

Fourth is borrowing money from clients, excluding banks, and competitors.

Fifth is accepting gifts, awards, commissions, or money from clients without the employer’s consent.

Sixth is collecting monetary or in-kind donations, signatures, distributing flyers, or organizing meetings at the workplace without a written consent from the administration.


The draft law provides that the penalty shall be applied 30 days after the conclusion of investigations.
