HR & Payroll Guide

A global workforce presents challenges that require expert HR knowledge and specialised processes. HR & payroll legislation is a highly complex area. With rules and policies so often in flux, processing HR & payroll in-house is often costly and inefficient.

In the last period, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic has started, the HR & payroll services in Romania are even more challenging and resource-consuming. At Mazars, our team of specialists has prepared the HR & Payroll Guide, which is a comprehensive material that contains an up-to-date understanding of labour and employment legislation, designed for every business that is seeking to improve accuracy, efficiency, and security.

The Mazars’ HR & Payroll Guide responds to a list of frequently asked questions, which are classified into the following categories: employment contract, working hours, days off, salary payments, and benefits.

1. Employment contract

 An employment contract is an agreement between an employer and employee that sets out terms and conditions of employment. In our guide, you can find out more info about the signature process, the types of employment contracts, the employer’s obligations, a list of required documents for new starters, probation and notice period, and many more.

 2. Working hours

Working time is any period during which the employee performs the work, is at the employer's disposal, and performs his duties and tasks, according to the provisions of the individual labour (employment) contract. Find out more from our guide about working hours, part-time, overtime and how to calculate it, as well as work during the weekends and public holidays.

3. Days off

Everyone needs to take time off, to be refreshed and clear-headed, in order to give their best. During this category, we talk about holidays, unpaid leave, unexcused absence, days off for special events, childcare leave, sickness days, maternity leave, or vocational training leave.

4. Salary payments

Salary payments are extremely important both for the company and the employees. In this guide you can find all the necessary details, from the payment schedule, the payment slips, the pension and the medical insurance, to aspects related to the income tax.

5. Benefits

Employee benefits, also known as perks or fringe benefits, are provided to employees over and above salaries and wages. In our material, we tackle private health care, meal vouchers, cultural or gift vouchers, nursery vouchers, holiday discounts, sport pass, and more.
