A new Labour Law obliges employers to make social contributions for limited contracts.
5.1.4 Social security frameworks
There are no specific social security schemes for the cultural sector in Romania; general legislation applies in this field.
The new Labour Law (Law 40/2011) states that social contributions are also to be paid by the employer in the case of individual contracts with a limited period. Thus, many of those working in the cultural and creative sectors will benefit from the new law.
