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.
