After more than a year after the Law on Gender Equality (the “Law“) entered into force, the competent Ministry has enacted the Rulebook on Records and Reporting on Achieving Gender Equality (“Official Gazette of Republic of Serbia”, no. 67/2022) (the “Rulebook“). The Rulebook provides necessary forms for employers to record and report the required data.

In general, the Law focuses on measures against gender discrimination, and the implementation and improvement of gender equality, which is one of the elementary international human rights standards. It promotes equal opportunities for participation and equal treatment of women and men in the workplace and establishes new employer obligations.

When it comes to obligations concerning reports related to gender equality in the workplace, employers with 50 or more employees/engaged persons must:

  • record and classify data such as employee structure, qualifications, salaries, harassment (mobbing) complaints etc., collectively, by gender and age.
  • submit a yearly report on gender equality to the competent Ministry until 15 January for the previous year.

Employers have to keep the records either electronically or in written form. The records cannot contain personal data (only numbers and percentages). Each change of the data must be entered within eight business days of the change.

The Rulebook also requires employers to keep the records and reports in accordance with the internal rulebooks on preserving and archiving documents.

The fine for a legal entity failing to comply with the listed obligations ranges from RSD 50,000.00 to RSD 2,000,000.00, while the responsible person can be penalized in the amount of RSD 5,000.00 up to RSD 150,000.00.
