Long service allowance | 08 October 2019
More public sector workers to benefit
President Danny Faure has announced that the long service allowance scheme for government employees which was introduced in July 2019, will become applicable for employees serving in public enterprises from January 1, 2020.
The scheme will also be extended to cover employees on Public Service Commission (PSC) and Agency contracts from January 1, 2020.
It will be recalled that the long service allowance scheme was introduced principally to reward and recognise experience gained through long service, and also as a strategy for attracting and retaining talent in the public service.
