Appeal for Amendment of Article 5, Paragraph 1 of the Rules of Procedure on Working Booklet

 

 

 

Praxis lodged and Appeal for Amendment of Article 5, Paragraph 1 of the Rules of Procedure on Working Booklet (Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia, No. 17/97) to the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy. Article 5, Paragraph 1 prescribes that a request for issuance of working booklet is submitted to the competent municipal administration body according to one’s place of permanent residence for an unemployed person, and according to one’s place of employment for an employed person. Consistent enforcement of this Article leads to unemployed refugees and internally displaced persons having to travel to places of their permanent residence to submit request for obtaining a working booklet, which most often presents an insurmountable obstacle for them. Thus, not only are they unable to get employment, but also to use programmes and services of the National Employment Service.

The Appeal suggests amendment to the Article 5, Paragraph 1 of the Rules of Procedure on Working Booklet, by which territorial jurisdiction for submitting request for working booklet would be extended to fall into jurisdiction of administration bodies according to applicants’ place of temporary residence, in addition to jurisdiction of administration bodies according to their place of permanent residence.
