The first session under the title Precarious work at the national level was participated by the representatives of relevant authorities respectively institutions: mag. Katja Rihtar Bajuk from the Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, Peter Svetina from the Human Rights Ombudsman of the Republic of Slovenia, mag. Nataša Bergelj from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jakob Počivavšek from the Confederation of Trade Unions of Slovenia PERGAM, and Goran Lukić from the Counselling Office for Workers, as well as Tomaž Vesel, President of the Court of Audit.
Mr Vesel pointed out certain direct public finance consequences of precarious work which are problematic for the state in the long term. Nevertheless, negative impacts are felt also by individuals who find themselves is a difficult, unfavourable, often unbearable socio-economic situation due to precarious work. The Court of Audit thus introduced an audit to express an objective and independent view concerning the efficiency of regulating the field of precarious work, and to provide necessary recommendations.
