MetadataShow full item record
Since the beginning of the last decade there were numerous attempts made to create a unified system of remuneration for public sector employees in Lithuania (in 1996 even the law, regulating the remuneration conditions of all Lithuanian public sector employees was accepted however remained not implemented). Despite all the attempts made, currently different laws legitimate remuneration conditions of Lithuanian public sector employees - there are special laws for state politicians, judges and state officials; public servants; scientists and educators; cultural sphere employees; etc. Different principles of conditions of state sector employees remuneration are fixed in those laws. Although by different laws the public sector remuneration in Lithuania is still regulated centrally - exclusively by state. Such kind of regulation of public sector remuneration creates a number of problems - often jobs requiring high qualifications are underpaid and vice versa the jobs of lower qualification are paid higher because of the regulation of remuneration by different laws. As the experience of European countries (presented in the article) shows the regulation of the remuneration conditions of public sector employees progresses differently. During the last decade the reform of public sector employees remuneration takes place in the largest number of European countries - the settlement of remuneration conditions is shifted from central/federal to local/regional authorities, the role of collective bargaining is strengthening. The settlement of remuneration conditions in the collective agreements warrants the transparency and justice of remuneration system. In the authors view the regulation of remuneration of public sector employees in Lithuania has been developed in the direction of liberalisation - the responsibility for public sector remuneration regulation shifting from central authorities to collective bargaining and collective agreements.
