The government might be scrapping the system of luncheon vouchers by way of a revision of the Labour Code. What exactly will replace this employee benefit is unknown, but the 750,000 or so people that currently get luncheon vouchers from their employers, could be given a wage allowance instead.
Labour minister Jozef Mihal told TASR newswire that he supported the idea, because the current system as set out in the law is way too complex and easy to bypass. “Why not give employees money instead?” he said.
If the proposal is pushed through, it could mean faster queues in the shops as you will no longer be stuck behind someone paying for all their provisions with an array of luncheon vouchers.
