THE RIGHT TO HAPPINESS AT WORK: THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE ROMANIAN LEGISLATION

Radu Razvan POPESCU

 The paper aims to outline that, despite the lack of specific regulation addressing the right to

happiness at work under the Romanian legislation, there is an indissoluble connection between
happiness, well-being and respect of human dignity that defines the working environment in
Romania and employees’ productiveness at work, thus transposing happiness at work into a set of
social values that need to benefit from proper legal protection. A recent study carried out in Romania
reveals that happiness at work is not linked to low-paid jobs or poorly-equipped working
environments, but mainly to the level of content of workers with respect to their person and to the
opportunity to develop their career. What guarantees does the Romanian legislation offer to this
extent?
