  • Public employee system

    The Slovenian public employee system falls under the scope of labour law regulating the particularities of employment relationships where the employer is the state, the local community or other entity under public law. The particularities of employment relationships in the public employee system arise from the nature of work performed by public employees and are governed by the Public Employees Act, adopted in 2002.

  • Salary system

    The public sector salary system applies to the entire public sector, which is made up of budget users (state bodies and self-governing local authorities, public agencies, public funds, public institutes, public commercial institutes and other entities under public law that are indirect users of the state budget or local authority budgets).
