Unemployed people will be obliged to look for a job on their own. Employer will have to tell about job openings during 5 days. On October 24, a new amendment of the law on employment will be introduced in Belarus. The document involves the stricter punishment for breaking the law.

The period when a person can be unemployed is two times less. It was reduced from 36 to 18 months.

The question related to a repeated registration as unemployed is cleared in the document. Employers have to notify about new vacancy in a 5-day period. Earlier they had two weeks. The term of free working place is specified. It is a job position that is not occupied by a worker who had working relations with an employer based on a signed contract.
