Changes in law on public service approved

FOLLOWING an October 31 passage of changes in the law on public service, state employees will be paid under a new system that, it is hoped, will encourage better job performance among state servants.

Taking effect in January next year, the amendments to the law on state service will introduce a system that, unlike today’s, pays servants with respect to performance, rather than the number of years spent in state service.

Head of the Office for State Service (ÚŠS) Ľubomír Plai said that effective state employees would be able to receive bonuses of up to 100 percent of their basic salary.
