Republic of Cyprus
Department of Labour Relations

Laws/Regulations/Orders


The Department of Labour Relations is the competent authority for enforcing labour legislation in Cyprus. On this page you can find Laws, Regulations and Orders, for which the Department is responsible for their enforcement. Labour legislation determines and safeguards minimum terms of employment, whilst it also provides for a number of other rights and obligations for both employees and employers.

It should be stressed that according to the industrial relations system and practice followed in Cyprus, terms and conditions of employment, as well as minimum standards, are mainly provided for in collective agreements. Furthermore, where collective agreements provide for more favourable terms and conditions of employment, these always supersede the minimum terms provided for by legislation.

Please note that the text of Laws available on this page are Unofficial Translations and only the Greek versions are authentic.

In addition, Department of Labour Relations issues Information Guides on Labour Legislation in order to put the legislation in plain words for the wider public.
