Parliament adopted the amendments to the Ministry of Interior Act on Thursday.

Before Parliament’s second reading, the Interior Ministry withdrew several of its key proposals.

As before, at retirement, employees will continue to receive compensation of up to 20 monthly wages. Paid annual leave continues to be 30 days and will not be reduced by 5 days as envisaged.

Parliament approved for employees to work overtime up to 25 hours per quarter and up to 100 hours in emergencies and natural disasters.

Policemen may work overtime above the set limits but only when they have agreed in writing.

The law enters into force on January 1, 2017.
