President approves new supplementation allowance for all public service employees | 02 December 2019
President Danny Faure has approved for all public service employees to benefit from a 5% enhancement in the salaries by way of a supplementation allowance, with retrospective effect from April 1, 2019. Payments will be made with the December 2019 salaries.
State House released the news through a communiqué dated Saturday November 30, 2019.
The resolution by President Faure follows the decision of the Constitutional Court to dismiss the executive’s case against the annulment by the National Assembly for the Public Service Salary Table gazetted in April 2019.
The Public Service Salary Table of 2014 remains unchanged as a new Salary Table has not yet been approved by the National Assembly.
Accordingly, the supplementation allowance will not apply to all Constitutional appointees and others whose salary is defined by law. These include all persons listed in Schedule 2 of the Public Service Salary Act 2013. These include the president, vice-president, designated minister, ministers, chief justice, president of the court of appeal, judges and justices of appeal, master of the supreme court, speaker, deputy speaker, leader of the opposition, leader of government business, members of the National Assembly, chairman and members of the Constitutional Appointments Authority, chairman and members of Public Service Appeal Board, ombudsman, attorney general, auditor general, chairperson and members of the electoral commission.
