Currently 53 services offered by the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population of the Republic of Azerbaijan are provided electronically and 26 proactively via the e-social portal. In the near future, 57 more e-services are expected to be launched, and 7 of them will be activated by the end of this year.
The Parliament of the Republic of Azerbaijan passed a law approving amendments to the Labor Code of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Pursuant to the amendments, the fixed-term employment contracts, that previously could not exceed 5 years’ period, now depend on the agreement between parties.
From now on employment contract conclusion, amendment or termination enters into legal force after registration of the employment contract notice included in the electronic information system in that electronic information system and sending information to the employer electronically.
