Minister Carovska presented the possibilities of the law on internship to the representatives of the Macedonian Banking Association
The Minister of Labor and Social Policy, Mila Carovska, and her team promoted the new Law on Internship to the representatives of the members of the Macedonian Banking Association.
At the presentation of this new Law, which aims to protect the interns but also helps the employers to choose the best workers, it was emphasized that internship is neither volunteering nor apprenticeships and should provide young people with an opportunity to acquire knowledge and practices that will help them to successfully emerge on the labor market.
“At the initiative of the chambers of commerce we have created a legal framework that gives companies the opportunity to engage young people in practical work. That way we increase the employability of young people, as well as the opportunity to select high quality staff ”, said Minister Carovska at the meeting.
The President of the Macedonian Banking Association, Maja Stevkova-Sterieva PhD, noted that this legal act could benefit the banks primarily with the critical positions at the moment – IT experts, whose fluctuations affect the work operation. With this law, the interns can also have secondary education and this is the first segment that should interest the banks.
The bank’s representatives asked questions about some specific legal dilemmas arising from the legal draft.
