Abstract

European Union represents a supranational creation based on respect for basic human rights, prohibition of all forms of discrimination and promotion of tolerance. Its main legislative institutions, the Council of Ministers, Parliament and Commission seek to harmonize Member State’s legislation by adopting directives, the instruments which at the same time represent a guarantee of respect for a wide range of rights enjoyed by Union’s citizens. Bearing in mind the fact that the Republic of Serbia is in the process of harmonization of its national legislation with acquis communautaire, as well as the importance of working and labor relations for the proper functioning of market and entire economy, this paper will explore the question of the impact of directives on domestic legislation and evaluations of achieved results. The paper defines the issues of temporary agency recruitment, working conditions, protection of workers on the job, collective dismissals, bankruptcy and transfers of enterprises. These are the areas in which the Republic of Serbia has largely adapted its national regulations to the provisions of European Union (EU) directives.
