Armenia/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.6 Labour laws

Institutions, including cultural ones, are guided by the Labour Code (2004). Labour relations between individual art workers and cultural organisations are regulated both by law and by the provisions of agreements signed between them, in the form of typical labour or service agreements. Regarding the regulation of payments, cultural workers do not differ from other workers.

The Labour Code does not provide any separate provision for voluntary work and unintentionally considers it as a job too. Volunteers work in different fields, but without any legislative protection.
