Summary/Abstract: The subject of this legal analysis is the jurisdiction for enactment of labor legislature and international human rights documents which are relevant for development of labor legislation according to Dayton agreement, the principles of labor law established by constitutional provisions, as well as development and harmonization of labor legislature. International human rights documents which are mandatory according to Dayton Agreement are the international grounds and framework for development of labor legislature. Harmonization of labor legislature with those documents has marked the stage of development of labor legislature initiated at the beginning of this century. After the Stabilization and Association Agreement was ratified the development of labor legislation has been dependant upon the process of harmonization of labor law with the European Union law. The author stresses out the importance of social democracy in that process, having in mind that Dayton agreement provides for the implementation of democratic principles, and that legal regulation is a starting phase in establishing democratic relations. The perspective of the labor world is linked to development of social democracy and the road towards the European social model, and these values are at the same time the grounds of new model of economic development. Dayton agreement is a favorable ground for development of labor legislation, but here, as well as in other countries in this region, the consistent implementation of constitutional and law pro¬visions at force, is a bigger problem than enactment of laws that would be in conformity with European and international sources of labor law.
