Jūrininkų darbo ir socialinės teisės pagal MLC 2006.
In 2013, the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC 2006) was ratified in Lithuania. The convention has had a big influence on the whole sector of sea shipping. In this article, fundamental labour law principles are analysed, which have been consolidated in the MLC 2006. These principles basically correspond to the already determined analogue principles at Lithuanian law system, considering the issue of collision. Even though Lithuanian authorities have already started to eliminate gaps of the legal regulation in order to implement the Maritime Labour Convention 2006, some regulations (which acceptance fall under the competence of the Member States according to MLC 2006), such as an order, adopted on 21st of November 2013, No. 3-592/A1-641/V-1075, regarding onboard complaints procedure, could be improved. Having analysed legal regulations of Lithuania, the author has come to the conclusion that the issue of an old-age benefit, which has been described in the MLC 2006, standard A4.5, part 1, regarding seamen of Lithuania working on ships registered in non-EU countries, is not regulated.
