On 18 November 2016, the Rulebook on the Content and Manner of
Keeping Records on Employees and Other Persons Engaged in work
(Rulebook) has been published in the Federation of Bosnia and
Herzegovina (FBiH) with the aim of regulating in detail the
employers' obligation to maintain relevant records, as provided
for in Article 43 of the FBiH labor law (Law). The Rulebook shall
enter into force on 26 November 2016.
The Rulebook regulates in detail the content and the manner of
keeping records on employees, records on other persons engaged in
work, as well as records on working hours. These records may be
kept in a written form as a book or electronically.
The period of retention depends on the type of the record;
whereas records on employees must be retained permanently, records
on other persons engaged in work must be retained for at least five
years from the day of cessation of their work, and records on
working hours for at least five years, except in the event the
employer is aware of a labor dispute for which the record may be
relevant, when the record must be retained until the valid
completion of the dispute.
The appropriate misdemeanor fines, as specified in the Law, for
employers who do not keep records on their employees or who keep
records contrary to the prescribed manner, range from BAM 1.000,00
to BAM 3.000,00, and for a repeated misdemeanor from BAM 5.000,00
to BAM 10.000,00.

Most of us know the difference between being employed and being self-employed (or at least we think we do). And in everyday laymen's terms, the difference is relatively straightforward and obvious – if you are employed, you work for someone else and, if you are self-employed, you ‘work for yourself'.
This coming year looks to be another busy one with more significant employment law changes coming into force and we have highlighted some of the key changes, which range from the introduction of gender pay...
