Government Office to lay off one in seven

THE GOVERNMENT Office is planning to lay off 10-15 percent of its employees. Silvia Glendová, spokeswoman for Prime Minister Robert Fico, said that the planned job cuts were the result of a reorganisation of the Government Office that has yet to be discussed with department heads.

Glendová said that the layoffs would only affect departments that can operate efficiently with fewer employees. At the same time, some departments will be taking on new people. The new organizational structure should take effect as of January 1, 2007.

When the Fico government took power after June 17 elections, it said that the state sector workforce would be cut at all government institutions in order to reduce spending. The cabinet approved a 20-percent across-the-board cut in the number of state employees, although it has yet to follow through on this promise.
