Important information about employers

The Ministry of Social Protection and Labor and the State Labor Inspectorate receive information that unscrupulous employers are illegally collecting funds from employed third-country nationals to cover possible future losses incurred by the employer. At the same time, employers take advantage of the fact that foreigners do not know the laws of Lithuania, the state language and do not dare to turn to institutions.

The Ministry of Social Protection and Labor and the State Labor Inspectorate invites you, in case of questions regarding labor relations, to consult the STATE LABOR INSPECTION. Consultations are provided by phone (8 5) 213 9772 (+370 521 39 772) or in writing (using the electronic request form https://www.vdi.lt/Forms/Paklausimas.aspx or via Facebook).

Here is an explanation of this fundraiser:
► Fundraising for funds intended to cover possible future losses incurred by the employer is UNJUSTIFIED AND ILLEGAL.

► Deductions from the employee’s salary can be made only IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THE LABOR CODE.

► Deductions from the employee’s salary can be made ONLY IN CASE OF EMPLOYMENT BY THE EMPLOYER OF THE EMPLOYEE’S VIOLATIONS OF THE EMPLOYMENT OBLIGATIONS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE OTHER.

► UNDER LITHUANIAN LABOR LAW, WORKERS HAVE LIMITED MATERIAL RESPONSIBILITY (UNDER) and if the material damage is caused by great negligence of the worker – in the amount of not more than 6 (six) of his average wages.

► THE EMPLOYEE IS OBLIGATED TO COMPLETELY COMPENSATE FOR DAMAGES ONLY IN THE FOLLOWING CASES: intentional damage; causing damage by actions that have the characteristics of a crime; infliction of damage by a worker while intoxicated or under the influence of narcotic, toxic or psychotropic substances; damages caused by violation of the storage of confidential information or an agreement to avoid competition; inflicting non-pecuniary damage to the employer; in the case when compensation for full material damage is provided by the collective agreement.

► A WRITTEN INSTRUCTION OF THE EMPLOYER ON DETERMINATION OF DAMAGES due to the employee’s wages must be accepted no later than within 3 (three) months from the date of detection of losses. The amount of such penalty may not exceed 1 (one) average salary of the employee. If the employer misses this deadline or wants a larger deduction to be reimbursed, he cannot do so arbitrarily, but must apply to the Labor Disputes Commission (a tripartite institution operating on a regional basis, in which decisions are made by representatives of trade unions and employers. region, as well as the local State Labor Inspectorate).

► When deducting compensation due to the employee’s salary on the basis of a written instruction from the employer, the LIMITS OF DEDUCTIONS must be observed. This means that the amount of deductions from wages that does not exceed the minimum wage approved by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania (from 01.01.2018 is – 400 euros), can not exceed 20% of net wages paid. 70% of the paid salary is deducted from the part of the salary that exceeds the amount of the minimum wage approved by the Government.

Иван очень быстро помог решить сложный вопрос отмены запрета на... въезд в Украину. Сама процедура заняла около 2 с половиной недель. Он постоянно был на связи, терпеливо отвечал на все вопросы. Шел на контакт и встречался, когда это было нужно. В конце концов, он просто очень вежливый, приятный в общении и адекватный юрист. Он берется за сложные и оч сложные миграционные проблемы и успешно их решает. Это был приятный опыт сотрудничества для меня! Мои лучшие рекомендации!!read more

My daughter was denied students visa to Ukraine where she intends to study medicine. I had provided every document... including invitation letter from the university, bank statements , sponsorship letter and others needed for Ukraine visa to VFS global ,Dakar. Yet the embassy says we did not prove the purpose of stay in Ukraine ( as per the refusal letter)I felt unfairly treated and decided to make an appeal. Having no idea as to how to write the appeal letter, I went to the internet and googled " Immigration lawyers in Ukraine" I found Armax group and met them on WhatsApp. Immediately they swung into action, in a space of one month the passport with the visa securely sticked in it was in my mail box !!! Armax group are pragmatic and results oriented immigration agency. I recommend them to all who need their services. Ekow Brakwah ( Guinea Bissau)read more
