ITAS warns of possible brain drain of IT workers

The Slovak IT Association (ITAS) has warned that Slovakia might soon face an outflow of qualified labour from the IT sector to abroad if the Labour Ministry increases compulsory social insurance and health insurance payments.

ITAS President Juraj Sabaka said that higher payments would apply to most employees in the sector and underscored that IT workers should be subject to the same rules as everyone else.

The ITAS also said any new proposal that increased payments would be at odds with the goal of achieving a knowledge-based economy. SITA
