Board-level Representation

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

There is a single-tier board system and employees have no right to be board members. However, the law on trade unions states that elected delegates of the representative trade union (see section on unions) should be invited to participate in management boards to discuss “problems of professional, economic, social, cultural and sports interest”. The trade union delegates do not have a vote but they should be given the agenda and access to the material to be discussed. They should be told of the board’s decisions on the issues within 48 hours.
