There is good news for civil servants as effective from 1st April 2022, overtime will be reinstated for all civil servants on band E and below and overtime will also be reinstated for registered nurses on Band F.

Other officers on Band F and above will be entitled to Time Off in Lieu of overtime pay. This excludes teachers.

The Ministry of Civil Service will be issuing a circular in the coming week.

Meal allowances will also be increased from $10 to $15.

Government is bringing back rural and maritime allowances for Civil Servants with an allocation of $1 million.

The Government has allocated funding of $500,000 to adjust the wages of civil servants who are hourly paid.

$2.7 million is being allocated to appropriately remunerate 312 teachers who have upskilled their qualifications.

Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the Government is conducting a thorough civil service review that is, salary and benefits–for positions they know to require scarce skills and personnel that they need to retain.

Sayed-Khaiyum says they have allocated $250,000 towards a civil service recognition programme whereby those development partners, private sector partners and civil servants who served the nation during the COVID-19 pandemic will be recognised with a medal award for their Outstanding Courage, Compassion and Commitment.

Meanwhile, Family Care and Paternity Leave have been put on hold.
