The government has presented its directive for a review of labour laws, charging an inquiry to propose an easing of the Last In First Out (LIFO) rules and lower redundancy costs.
Announcing the news on Thursday, Social Democratic Employment Minister Ylva Johansson admitted that parts of the directive are troublesome for the party, but said the government was meeting the terms of the January agreement.
Left Party leader Jonas Sjöstedt has threatened to call for a vote of no confidence in the government, if it presents such a bill in Parliament.
The inquiry will present its findings by May 2020 and a law change will come into effect in 2021, according to plans.
