The employment relationships in Kosovo are regulated by many legal acts beginning with the Kosovo Constitution. Kosovo Constitution serves as the main resource of the employment law and then there is a considerable number of legal acts which could be used as the resources of the employment law. As the resource of the employment law there are a series of international legal acts that are directly applicable in Kosovo. Based on these resources there is a legal system in place which regulates the rights and the obligations that derive from the employment relationship. Among these resources Kosovo Labor Law is the main legal act applicable for employers and employees in the public and the private sector. Implementation of Labor Law and other legal resources in sense of employment relationships has not been an easy process in ensuring equal opportunities and in avoiding discrimination during the entire process: from hiring up to contract termination, as well as the protection of employees during the time they are working and especially in cases of contract termination.

The paper and especially findings, conclusions and the recommendation could be used as a resource for further academic debates.
