A new research report from the Lithuanian Free Market institute ‘’Dismissal rules and costs: balancing efficiency and employee protection“ analyses dismissal rules and costs in selected CEE countries and looks into their economic implications. The study finds that applicable laws do not provide enough leeway for human capital allocation nor do they create incentives for increasing efficiency of employees, employers and the economy. Recommendations are put forward regarding ways to reach a proper balance between an efficient use of resources and adequate employee protection. The research, which was conducted in cooperation with think-tanks from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia and Slovakia, is based on comparative regulatory analysis and expert interviews.
