Recent Legal Developments in Relation to Internship and to Equality of Chances and Treatment for Women and Men in Romania

The July 2018 Employment Flash News of SEE Legal’s Romanian member, Nestor Nestor Diculescu Kingston Petersen (“NNDKP”), is featuring recent legal developments in relation to internship and to equality of chances and treatment for women and men.

  • Romanian Law no. 176/2018 on internship was published within the Official Gazette no. 626 of July 19, 2018 and it regulates the performance of internship programs for persons over 16 years of age. As an exception, persons aged 15 may conclude internship contracts only with the consent of their parents or legal representatives.
    According to this normative act, the internship program represents a specific activity carried out by an intern for a limited period of time, within a host company, aiming to develop theoretical knowledge, to improve practical abilities and/or to acquire new abilities or skills. The host company (defined as any legal entity in which the intern carries out activity based on an internship contract) publicly promotes internship programs and details about them, such as the selection criteria and period, contractual conditions, etc.
    The normative act stipulates that the host company may conclude internship contracts for a number of interns, representing no more than 5% of the total number of employees. As an exception for host companies with up to 20 employees, a maximum of two internship contracts can be concluded at the same time.
  • Romanian Law no. 178/2018 on the equality of chances and treatment for women and men, published within the Official Gazette no. 627 of July 19, 2018, is amending and completing Law no. 202/2002. The main amendments concern the establishment of a general regime for two new occupations, as provided by the Romanian Job Classification (COR), namely the expert on equality of chances and the technician on equality of chances.
