Any employment contract concluded with a foreigner must be in line with the minimum requirements of Slovenian labour legislation (minimum wage, work breaks, holidays and other working conditions). The Employment and Work of Foreigners Act forbids employers imposing costs for obtaining work permits and other administrative costs on employees and prescribes the minimum housing and hygiene standards where accommodation is provided to foreign workers. Employers who fail to meet the legal requirements may not employ foreigners for a period of up to 10 years.
