Recently, the Romanian Labour Code was amended with the Law no. 97/2015 which modifies the art. 137 par (1). Therefore, the weekly rest matter has been clarified. Before the over written amendment, the law stated that the weekly rest period to which every employee is entitled is granted in two consecutive days, ordinarily Saturday and Sunday. However, this new form of the article clarified the “2 day” term and states that “the weekly rest is of 48 hours consecutively, ordinarily Saturday and Sunday”. The legislature states that the new form of the article is more concise and does not leave any room for interpretation. It is recommended that the employer is aware of the situation in which an employee, depending on his scheduled shifts, could in fact benefit from a period of 3 days of his weekly rest.
