AMMAN — Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Public Sector Modernisation Nasser Shraideh on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Bisher Khasawneh had directed relevant institutions to conduct a study on the impact of the new human resources bylaw on public employees with second jobs.   

During a press conference, Shraideh noted that there a ministerial committee is examining the issue of public servants doing a second job and will issue its recommendations over the matter in dispute.

Under a new bylaw the government has recently announced, no public employee shall have a second job and shall be subject to disciplinary measures, including dismissal, should they not rectify their statuses within certain deadlines.   

The minister said that the government "would never" adopt decisions that can affect the living conditions of employees.

He added that the government adopted a new human resources bylaw in a bid to develop the human resources system and improve the institutional and individual performance.

Shraideh pointed out that the new bylaw seeks to improve the work environment to stimulate innovation and production.
