No VSS for government employees

The Public Services Department (PSD) is not adopting the Voluntarily Separation Scheme (VSS) for problematic staff.This was confirmed by PSD director general Tan Sri Ismail Adnan to Cuepacs president Omar Osman in Kuala Lumpur yesterday (Aug 29).

Instead the PSD will continue to use the option under the Pensions Act 1980 or Act 277. Under the Act, services of civil servants can be ended by mandatory retirement, forced retirement due to health grounds, retirement as wanted by the government in public interest, in the national interest and in the interest of the civil service.

Omar was in Kota Kinabalu earlier this week where he disclosed that Cuepacs had rejected the government proposal to adopt the VSS.
