The government has opposed the increase of salaries for judges

The package of documents, submitted to the Duma of the bill of the armed forces on Tuesday, February 14, there is a negative opinion of the government. In the opinion signed by the head of staff Sergei Prikhodko pointed out that the new law “On judicial service” largely duplicates provisions of the law “On state service”.

As indicated in the financial-economic basis for the project, additional expenses of the budget initiative will not entail. But this bill introduces a new system for calculating premiums based on years of service, indicates the Supreme court. But this will entail additional burden on the budget, criticized the initiative in its response the government.

The draft law “On judicial service” was developed in the judicial Department of the Supreme court in 2014. The bill proposes to introduce a new position of court officers and assign them ranks. So in the courts in addition to counselors, there may be secretaries of judicial service, advisors and government advisors.

The bill establishes that the salary of the court staff will consist of two months ‘ salary (salary according to position and rank for you) and bonuses, which will be set by analogy with judicial. In particular, awards for long service, for special conditions of service, as well as the award for work with secret information and bonuses for fulfillment of very important tasks.

Award for years of service will be from 10 to 30% charges to the salary for the position. And allowance for special conditions — 200%. The size of the salary for the rank, according to the law, will be separately established by the President. And the salary for the position will be determined on the ground by the authorities of the regions.

The initiative stems from the fact that the salaries of court staff members — assistants to judges and secretaries are still at a very low level. The average assistant referee per month to 15 thousand roubles, have told sources in the legal community. And salaries of heads of offices of the courts even Federal levels do not exceed 40 thousand rubles per month, follows from the annual income declarations of employees of the courts.

All this leads to high staff turnover and lack of staff, says the source in the legal community. At the same time to increase the salaries of the employees without increasing the incomes of all civil servants, can be done.

“Certainly, the staff need to raise salaries, — said the lawyer Ruslan Koblev. He noted that often the court staff come to work people who in future intend to become judges. But due to high loads and low salaries, not all can withstand.
