NEWS BRIEFS

Ministries hire equal ops experts

ALL SLOVAK ministries are expected to employ equal opportunity experts by the end of October 2006, the TASR news agency reported.

The plan, proposed by the Labour Ministry, foresees that each ministry has a small group of experts to contribute to the creation of effective tools that reflect the idea of equal opportunities in the workplace.

The ministry has laid out these goals within a EU twinning project in co-operation with its partners from Germany and France. The project is the first of its kind in Slovakia.
