Reporting a Vacancy and the Situation on the Labour Market

When deciding on the application for a work permit or for the EU Blue Card, or in cases where confirmation on the possibility to fill in a vacancy is required, the Office of Labour, Social Affairs and Family or the Central Office of Labour, Social Affairs and Familly (in case of Blue Card) is obliged to take into account the situation on the labour market and consider whether the register of job seekers does not include a job seeker that would qualify for the job vacancy in question.
 

Therefore, if an employer wants to employ you, he must first report a job vacancy to a competent Labour Office (or Central Labour Office). Vacancy may be reported in person, in writing, by telephone, electronic mail, fax or via the web page www.istp.sk.

Official Form for reporting a vacancy is available here, on the website of the Central Office of Labour, Social Affairs and Family www.upsvar.sk and at all Labour offices.

Vacancy must be reported:

  • At least 15 working daysbefore submitting the application for a work permit - if your case requires a work permit - at the competent Labour Office,
  • At least30 working days before submitting the application for temporary residence for the purpose of employment - if your case requires confirmation on the possibility to fill in a vacancy - at the competent Labour Office or
  • At least 30 working days before submitting the application for the EU Blue Card - at the competent Central Labour Office.

Labour Office (or Central Labour Office) shall first examine whether the register of job seekers does not include a job seeker that would qualify for the vacancy in question. If such applicant is listed in the register of job seekers, the Labour Office is required to give him priority.

When is the situation on the labour market not taken into account?

Labour Office will grant you a work permit without taking into account the situation on the labour market if it is stipulated by an international treaty binding for the Slovak Republic, or in the case of a foreign national who is in an employment relationship with an employer, who has its registered seat or the seat of  the organizational unit with employment/legal personality outside the territory of the Slovak Republic and who deploys the foreign national on basis of an agreement concluded with a legal or natural person to perform work in Slovakia.

Equally, without taking into account the situation on the labour market, the Labour Office will issue a confirmation on the possibility to fill in a vacancy, if you perform in Slovakia continuous educational activity or scientific activity as an educational staff, university teacher, researcher and art scholars, research or development employee in a research activity. 

In these cases it is not necessary to report a job vacancy. 

In cases that do not require a work permit or confirmation on the possibility to fill in a vacancy, is also not necessary report a job vacancy.
