Bavaria: ORH: incorrect payslips for state employees

Munich (dpa / lby) - The Bavarian Supreme Court of Auditors (ORH) complains of high error rates in the classification and thus in the payment of state employees. According to a statistical projection, at least 7 percent of all payslips could be incorrect in 2019 and at least 3.5 percent in 2020. The ORH announced this on Wednesday in Munich.

The ORH refers to the examination of 400 individual cases in each of the two years. In these cases alone, EUR 625,000 or EUR 210,000 was overpaid. In one case, incorrect classification over the years added up to an "overpayment" of 84,000 euros, according to the ORH. In some cases there could also have been "underpayments".

According to the ORH, most mistakes were made during classification and level determination. However, many employment contracts also contained invalid time limits or the like, which could have a detrimental effect on the Free State in the event of a dispute. In view of annual payments of 4.8 billion euros, it is "essential to significantly reduce the unacceptable error rates through suitable administrative countermeasures," according to the ORH.

According to the ORH, a total of around 130,000 state employees are employed in the Free State. They receive a total of around 4.8 billion euros in remuneration annually. According to the ORH paper, 400 authorities are responsible for personnel and job administration.
