Participation & Public Consultation
Based on the Labour Market Regulation law (Law no. 19 of 2006, Article 5), "The authority shall carry Consultations with public and relevant parties, with a view to take their opinions, before issuing any decision or taking such measures". The LMRA is also bound to guarantee access to information and received opinions for all. Then the comments are raised to the Board of Directors.
Any public consultation will be available and announced on the LMRA website for the ease of access.
Furthermore, the LMRA website offers different ways of public participation. Often polls take place on the LMRA website and site visitors can cast their votes on a certain subject or opinion. (Homepage - Cast your Vote Block)
Visitors also have the opportunity to rate the authority’s service quality and submit suggestions through the website (Are we doing well?), then the quality department collects the results and suggestions and prepare a monthly quality of service report and our KPIs and submits it to the management for further improvements.
