The Labour Code in art. 227 distinguishes two categories of diseases, that may occur in relation to work — occupational diseases and other diseases caused by working environment. In those both cases employer is required to do conduct appropriate preventive measures. However, only in occupational diseases case the list, recognition procedure and social security benefi ts that derived from those, was defi ned. In case of other, not directly defi ned diseases caused by working environment, only civil law procedure is available for aggrieved employee. Therefore, it was proposed, that legislator should clearly defi ne the procedure for certifi cation of such disease caused by working environment, as well as the scope of benefi ts that aggrieved employee is entitled to.
