Drafting HR Policies and Procedures

Ensuring a compliant and thriving workplace in Albania requires meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of the evolving legal landscape. At Oracle Solicitors Albania, our seasoned employment lawyers are not just legal advisors – we are your strategic partners in crafting comprehensive and legally sound Human Resources (HR) policies and procedures.

Navigating the Labyrinth of Albanian Employment Law:

Albanian employment law, governed by the Law No. 7961 “Labour Code of the Republic of Albania” (1995) and its amendments, presents a complex web of regulations affecting critical areas like:

  • Recruitment and selection: Ensuring fair and transparent hiring practices that comply with anti-discrimination laws.
  • Employee onboarding: Establishing a smooth and compliant integration process for new hires.
  • Compensation and benefits: Adhering to minimum wage requirements, overtime regulations, and mandatory social security contributions.
  • Performance management: Implementing fair and objective performance evaluation systems aligned with legal frameworks.
  • Disciplinary and grievance procedures: Establishing clear and legally compliant procedures for addressing employee misconduct and grievances.
  • Leave management: Ensuring compliance with various leave entitlements, including annual leave, sick leave, and parental leave.
  • Termination of employment: Adhering to legal termination procedures, including notice periods, severance pay, and non-competition clauses.
  • Workplace safety and health: Maintaining a safe and healthy work environment as per Albanian safety regulations.
  • Confidentiality and intellectual property: Protecting sensitive information and intellectual property rights through appropriate policies.


Failing to navigate these complexities can lead to:

  • Legal disputes: Costly and time-consuming legal battles arising from non-compliance with employment laws.
  • Fines and penalties: Significant financial repercussions imposed by the Labour Inspectorate for violations.
  • Low employee morale: Unclear policies and unfair treatment can lead to demotivation, decreased productivity, and high employee turnover.
