According to the Labour Code, art. 34 (7) of law no. 53/2003, republished and updated, each employer from Romania has the obligation to instate a General Registry of Employees in electronic format, more widely known as Revisal.
Revisal is currently regulated by Government Decision no. 905/2017, which replaced the rules instated by the previous one, Government Decision no. 500/2011.
The deadlines that need to be respected in 2019 can be found below.
