Romania -Bonus amnesty for state workers -June 1, 2012

The Chamber of Deputies has passed an amnesty allowing public servants to keep the bonuses they were paid over 2008-2010. Members of the Chamber approved the draft by which the salaries of public sector staff are established by contracts or collective agreements, and awards responsibility for them to local or county councils. The measure had broad cross-party support. The draft law on the amnesty was submitted to the Parliament in March on behalf of the 300,000 civil servants forced to return received bonuses.
