Parliament Adopts New Wage-Formation Model in State Administration

Bulgaria's Parliament adopted on first reading amendments to the existing legislation, changing the remuneration model in the state administration.

Under the amendments, state administration employees will no longer be entitled to seniority class bonus payments, as these will be incorporated in their monthly salary, Parliament said in a statement published on its website on Thursday.

Financial incentives will be limited within 30% of the employees' salary, as the criteria an employee should meet to get a bonus for his performance will be set down in an ordinance.

The amendments affect about 16,000 people working in the public administration. To enter into force, they should pass on second reading.
