Law on public service amended

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

The amendments to the law on state service, to take effect in January next year, will introduce a system that, unlike today, will pay servants according to their performance, rather than the number of years they have spent in state service.

The 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 wages.
