Employees of health corporations transferred to Civil Service

Employees working under the health corporations have been transferred to the civil service from the first of November.

According to local media reports, the Health Ministry informed all health corporations across the country that their employees would be transferred to the Civil Service last week.

However, reports suggested that health corporations have not been yet abolished and the framework of employees in the corporations have not been adjusted to that of the Civil Service.

According officials from health corporations, the new change would mean that wages of employees would be adjusted in accordance with the wages set for the civil servants by the Civil Service Commission (CSC), although a decision on the matter is yet to be made.

The decision to transfer all the employees of health corporations came following discussion in cabinet.
