Your Data Protection Officer (DPO)

Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a key function provided by the GDPR and Serbian Law on Personal Data Protection (the Law). The main task of DPO is to organize and maintain the compliance of your business with the Law through continuous education and implementation of all relevant regulations, procedures and protocols, but also to be a key point in communicating with employees and clients when it comes to personal data protection.

By harmonizing and complying your company in the field of personal data protection as well as by appointing a DPO, you strengthen the credibility, reputation and image of an organization in terms of data security. DPO provides data protection for your employees, but also for the clients you do business with.

Hiring our law firm as an outsource for DPO services provides your business with flexible, versatile and customized support in personal data protection, as well as receiving timely data protection advice regardless of the industry in which you operate.

Practise Areas


The deadline is 60 days.

The deadline for initiating a labour dispute is 60 days from the day of delivery of the decision, ie knowledge of the violation of rights. This deadline is preclusive and the court takes care of it ex officio, which means that the lawsuit is not allowed after this deadline.

Three years.

All monetary claims deriving from employment become obsolete within three years from the date of the obligation. The court does not take into account the statute of limitations of claims ex officio, but only on the objection of statute of limitations.

Yes, you can.

But sick leave as such cannot be a reason for termination. Exceptionally, if the employee does not submit a doctor's certificate on temporary incapacity for work within (three days from the onset of incapacity), or abuses the right to a sick leave, then temporary incapacity for work is a justified reason for termination.

it does not determine.

Family law does not foresee the notion of guilt in this matter. Each spouse is entitled to divorce if marital relations are seriously and permanently disrupted or the union of the spouses' life cannot be objectively achieved.

The duration of the procedure depends on the case.

The duration of the proceedings is mostly related to the court's burden. It also depends on the actions of the opposite party, so it can be expected that both the first and the second instance will be completed in a period of two to three years.

EUROPEAN COURT OF HUMAN RIGHTS: Serbia to compensate blind chess players


The European Court of Human Rights ruled in the case of blind chess players Negovanovic and others against Serbia that our state discriminated against them in terms of benefits and awards that other athletes who win medals have, and ordered it to pay them 4,500 euros in non-pecuniary damage. As for the material damage, the court found that they should have been paid all the future financial benefits and / or prizes to which they would have been entitled if they had won medals at the Chess Olympiad for chess players they see. According to the decision published by the court in Strasbourg, Serbia violated the right to the prohibition of discrimination from the European Convention on Human Rights with the decision of the seven-member court panel, by votes 5: 2. Four blind chess players from Novi Sad, Branko Negovanovic, Sretko Avram, Ziva Markov and Dragoljub Baretic, sued the state after the Serbian Constitutional Court rejected their appeal in 2015, finding no discrimination because their medals were not won in competitions listed in the Sports Award. achievements and the Award Regulation. They sued the state for discrimination against blind chess players, because they won medals at major international competitions, especially at the Chess Olympics for the Blind. Unlike other Serbian athletes with disabilities and leading chess players who achieved the same or similar sports results, the applicants were denied certain financial benefits and awards for achievements, as well as formal recognition through an honorary diploma, all of which had a negative impact on their reputation. The European Court found that, although it was legitimate for the Serbian authorities to focus on the highest sporting achievements and the most important competitions in their reward system, there was no objective and reasonable justification for treating the applicants differently on the basis of their disability.
