14 months salary

Post Posted: Tue Nov 26, 2013 7:28 pm

I recall that the Portuguese Government were planning to "remove" the legal obligation for employers to pay employees 14 months salary per year. This was, if my memory is correct, something that was going to be phased out, though I can't remember the timescale.

Can someone please tell me the accurate and current situation please? Preferably with a definitive source of the legislation.

Can't help with the definitive legislation Rod but I can say that my other half has just received her Christmas extra salary and when she receives her December salary that will make 14 this year.

Meanwhile her union has been told that all staff must take a salary cut or many will be laid off. When I asked if the Directors will take a similar cut she said yes. It will not affect them though as last month they were all promoted one pay scale higher so when the cut comes it will be back to normal for them. How to win your staff over and make for a happy workplace eh!

I bet this is going to be kept very quite & not appear in the PT Press or reported on PT TV
If it ever comes out there will be absolute mayhem ! Twisted Evil

Well it seems I was wrong in my assumption in the post above Very Happy

Reported in the press today is that our present Gov has taken on even more "boy's"

Pedro Coelho (Peter Rabbit) our PM now has 60 staff in his office & our new Vice Primeminister Paulo Portas now has 3 offices with a total off 25 staff , not bad when you consider this political position never existed until a couple off month ago !

Everybody else has been taking salary cuts but somehow this lot have increased there income by 2.7%
The reported average salary is now 2.555.00€'s PM
