The opinion was issued in the procedure following a complaint filed by К. К. from B. against PE “Toplana” Bečej. The complainant stated that she was employed in PE “Toplana” Bečej for six years after which she was made redundant as the post she was transferred to (a clerk for labour relations and general affairs) was abolished soon after she took maternity leave with the second child. The Director of PE “Toplana” Bečej stated in a declaration that there was no longer a need for conducting tasks which К. К. conducted due to economic and organizational changes and entry into force of the new Rulebook on Organization and Job Systematization No. 1508/13 dated 23 December 2013. In the course of the procedure was determined that, in accordance with the Rulebook on Organization and Job Systematization in PE “Toplana” Bečej, other employees, male and female, were made redundant on the basis of the same criteria: termination of a need for conducting tasks allocated to them due to technological, economic and organizational changes in the employer’s company. The Commissioner for the Protection of Equality issued an opinion that PE “Toplana” B. did not violate the provisions of the Law on the Prohibition of Discrimination by making К. К. redundant in PE “Toplana” Bečej while she was on maternity leave and childcare leave, and by adopting a decision on the termination of employment contract No. 228/15 dated 16 March 2015 after she returned to work.
