THE REVISION OF HUNGARIAN PUBLIC SERVICE MOTIVATION (PSM) MODEL
Zsuzsanna Horváth – Gábor Hollósy-Vadász

Abstract

The Public Service Motivation Theory (PSM) turned up in the USA in the 90’s, the European civil services applied the PSM concept later. Very few studies addressed the PSM in Hungarian context. One of those prepared a PSM model adapted to Hungarian public service. In this study, we develop and complete this model with job security as new variable. We use the PLS-SEM method to analyze the representative database of ISSP. According to our result, the job security can be adapted to the previous PSM model. We also identify the direct and indirect effects of job security on the other variables of the model. The results of this study can be adapted in human resource management of the Hungarian public administration. Therefore, we suggest the public policy makers to confirm the motivation and job security among the public sector employees.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF PSYCHOSOCIAL RISKS IN THE WORKPLACE IN LEGAL CONTEXT
Monika Seilerová

Abstract

Although the issue of psychosocial risks in the workplace is not entirely new, dynamic economic and technological developments require adequate responses to changing realities of work and the working environment, both from legislative authorities and from internal policies. The Slovak legislation includes the evaluation and adoption of measures against the psychological workload, including the control mechanism. The author, however, does not consider the current legal status to be optimal. The paper deals with the analysis of the legal regulation of mental workload and points to its shortcomings. It also deals with the responsible legal relationships that arise in the context of the presence of psychosocial risks in the workplace, especially in the context of their impact on employee health, their subsequent legal entitlements and the duration of the employment relationship.

NOTICE FOR REDUNDANCY AS A DISCRIMINATORY MEASURE ON GROUNDS OF AGE
Martin Štefko

Abstract

Sociological investigations and a number of court decisions support the idea that redundancy dismissals are legal tools that can be misused easily for wrongful discharged based on an illegal age discrimination reason. This article analyses trial and appeal courts´ case law in order to clarify, what makes this particular reason for discharge so attractive for age discrimination perpetrators. Although Czech law does not recognize At-will Doctrine, and the Eu-Law forces an employer to proceed in relation to any elderly employee equally, redundancy has been proved to be the right instrument for employers that enables them to decide, who they do not work with, who they fire.

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF MOTIVATION OF CIVIL SERVANTS AND PUBLIC SERVANTS IN THE LOCAL STATE ADMINISTRATION – CASE STUDY OF SLOVAKIA
Dominika Vlacseková

Abstract

The topic of public service motivation is very actual. In several countries, including Slovakia, the public administration employees are divided into two major groups, which are civil servants and public servants. The civil servants are the state employees, while public servants are doing public service work. As we meet these two groups of employees in the public administration, who in terms of job and working conditions perform different tasks and receive different wages and benefits, we assumed, there is a difference in their motivation level. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to present a comparative analysis of motivation of civil servants and public servants in the local state administration of Slovakia. In order to carry out the research, one of the basic methods of quantitative research was chosen, the questionnaire survey. The results of the research are mainly highlighting the differences between two groups of employees working in the local state administration.
