Summary in plain english (Without legal value)

What is it?

This decree-law amends the rules of the General Law of Public Sector (LTFP).

What is going to change?

The rules regarding the disciplinary power of the public employer are amended

The public employer may now apply a disciplinary sanction in the cases there is a new contract for the same functions and the breach was committed within the scope of the previous contract, which has expired.

If an employee reaches 70 years old and wishes to continue working, he/she may do so if authorized by the government members responsible for the Finances and Public Administration areas. The bound remains, as a rule, for six months renewable to a maximum limit of five years.

The retirees are paid the salary correspondent to the work provided. If their pension’s amount if higher than the salary, they may be entitled to the payment of the different between the pension and the salary.

The services at which the retirees work must always inform CGA or social security about the beginning of the functions and the remuneration.
