Egypt’s Cabinet approved on Thursday a draft resolution submitted by the Central Agency for Organisation and Administration (CAOA) pertaining to the promotion of state employees to higher job titles.
The draft resolution, which covers as many as 800,000 employees, stipulated that state employees are entitled to be promoted to a higher job title as long as they meet the promotion requirements.
With that, the wages of those promoted will increase according to the value referred to in the law at an estimated percentage of 5 percent of their fixed salaries or their basic wages, plus the latest bonus they have received or whichever is of a higher value.
Under the decision, employees who occupy first degree jobs and who have been serving in their positions for over a period of three years are entitled to receive a bonus of a minimum limit of EGP 100 and a maximum limit of EGP 150.
The draft resolution comes in light of the state's interest in encouraging employees in state administrative bodies, as well as ushering in young people to higher jobs with the aim of upgrading the levels of human cadres operating in the different departments of the state. The move also complies with the state's policy to help more youths to advance their careers.
