The right to work within the Republic of Cyprus is guaranteed / safeguarded by Article 25 of the Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus in conjunction with a variety of statutory instruments governing a relationship between employer / employee and vice versa.

Employment relationships are governed by contract law principles and any terms attempting, either directly or indirectly, to ignore or disregard them is void; hence it must not contradict any law.
