In July of 2019, the Parliament of the Republic of Lithuania approved amendments of the Labor Code, which establish the obligation of the Employers to indicate the proposed remuneration in the job advertisements.
After the aforementioned changes became
effective 27 July 2019, all job advertisements posted on websites or in other manner
require employers to provide information on the size of the proposed salary
(i.e. hourly wage, monthly wage or fixed part of the salary) or the interval of
the salary i.e. the range from the lowest to the highest possible amount.
These legislative changes aim to
strengthen the bargaining power of employees, whereas the research carried out
reveals that the majority of employees agree to the proposed remuneration right
away, without negotiations. It is expected that when a person has more
information before coming to the first job interview, he/ she will be better
prepared for the negotiations. At the same time, this provision also aims to
encourage social responsibility of the employers.
