Kathmandu, December 4
After months of discussions, the government has finally endorsed the Staff Adjustment Ordinance and sent it to the President’s Office for enactment.
The law formulated to facilitate the management of existing workforce at newly structured local, provincial and federal levels will come into effect after the President puts her signature on it. The Head of the State is currently in Poland and she is scheduled to return home on Wednesday.
It has been learned that the law will sack staff who refuse to go to the assigned duty station within 35 days of the decision.
Likewise, the staff who agree to go to the lower level for adjustment will be promoted one level for encouragement. They, however, have to meet standard requirements of the higher position and must have completed seven years in service.
Seniority, current workplace and address of the staff will be considered as bases of the transfer.
The Cabinet endorsed the ordinance on Monday, according to a minister.
