Government starts year with massive recalls

AS MANY as 42 of 46 heads of local labor offices are to be sacked under a new law that makes it possible to fire state bureaucrats without giving specific reasons.

The Labour Ministry plans to inform the public of the dismissals next week.

The new law, which took effect January 1, also enables new officials to be nominated by the government and hired without going through job tenders.

The law was submitted to parliament by Smer party MP Robert Madej, who would not comment on the planned recalls.

“I don’t know anything about the recalls. It is up to the government to decide how many directors will be recalled,” he told the Pravda daily.
