Board-level Representation

Employee representatives have no right to be board members in Romania, although they can be invited to attend board meetings for some items.

Joint stock companies in Romania (SAs) can choose between a single-tier and a two-tier company structure, with a management and an executive board. In neither variant have employees a right to be board members.


However, an employer may invite the representative trade union at workplace level to the board of directors to discuss “issues of professional, economic and social interest” (Social Dialogue Act, Article 30). The union should be told of the board’s decisions on the issues discussed within two working days.
