The proposal stated,

The Honorable Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Nabih Berri

Subject: Proposal to amend the first paragraph of Article 19 of Law No. 46 dated 8/21/2017 (Rank and Salary Series Law)

With reference to the above topic, we would like to present to you the proposed law aimed at amending the first paragraph of Article 19 of Law No. 46 dated 8/21/2017, the Series of Ranks and Salaries Law.

Please kindly review and give it the necessary legal course.

Proposed law aiming to amend the first paragraph of Article 19 of Law No. 46 dated 8/21/2017, the Series of Ranks and Salaries Law)

Article One: The first paragraph of Article 19 of Law No. 46 dated 8/21/2017 (Rank and Salary Series Law) is amended to become as follows:

1- Public administration employees, employees of public institutions not subject to the Labor Law of various categories and ranks, and employees of the administrative staff at the Lebanese University and those contracting with it, regardless of the form of their contracts working on the date of entry into force of this law, will be given three exceptional grades, which are included in the basis of the salary, while retaining their right to the qualifying salary. For gradation.

Article Two: This amendment will come into effect as soon as the law is published in the Official Gazette.

  • Positive reasons

Whereas the first paragraph of Article 19 of Law No. 46 dated 8/21/2017 (the Rank and Salary Series Law) granted employees of the public administration and the general administrative staff at the Lebanese University three exceptional grades that are included in the basis of the salary.

Since employees of public institutions, such as the Lebanese University, are employees who manage public facilities, they have a legal personality and perform a public service to the state and citizens.

Whereas this article deprived employees of public institutions, as well as employees of the Lebanese University, of these three degrees, and thus distinguished between employees in the public sector.

Whereas justice requires that all those performing public service be treated equally, without favoring one group over another, especially since they all perform public service and face the same economic, social, and living challenges.

Whereas the first paragraph of Article 19 of Law No. 46 dated 8/21/2017 (Chain of Ranks and Salaries Law) distinguished between someone in public service and another, and this contradicts justice.

Therefore, amending this article so that those concerned are treated with equality and justice among themselves is not only within the law, but is a basic legal principle for achieving justice and fairness.

For all of this, we have come up with the attached law proposal, hoping that the honorable Parliament will discuss it and approve it.
