New rules for recording labour contracts in the electronic information system were submitted by Azerbaijani Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of Population to the government for approval, according to a message from the ministry.
Following the approval of these rules, the use of an electronic information system with the help of the 'electronic government' portal will start in Azerbaijan, according to the message.
Development of software for the electronic recording system has already been completed. The system will include individual identification codes of employees.
The launch of the new recording system, along with securing the employees' rights, will also prevent the cases of formal registration of labour contracts, when a copy of the signed contract is not given to the employee and is kept by the employer, the ministry said.
Thus, the employed citizens will not have to provide the certificate of employment, wage and so on. Such information will be available in the new system for electronic registration of labour contracts.
