Over the last four years, the Republic of Slovenia has been adopting a new and special wage system for the Slovenian public sector. The Slovenian parliament has adopted a special Law on Wages in the Public Sector in June 2002. This law came into force in May 2005. After this date, a new wage regulation is in power but not for all public employees in the public sector. The law currently regulates only wages for the directors in the public sector. After 1 March 2006, the wages for the directors in the public sector are calculated and paid according to the new legal regulation of the public wages. The law will enter into force for all employees in the public sector after the social partners adopt a new Collective Bargaining Agreement special for the Public Sector. In the article, the author describes the legal framework of the regulation of wages in the public sector. At first he defines the meaning of "the public sector" in Slovenian legal system and who is "the director in the public sector". He specifies which legal entities and legal persons are the subjects of the new law of the public wage system and how the different laws regulate the meaning of "the public sector" in the Slovenian legal system. The author compares the definitions of "the public sector" in the legislative acts such as the Public Finance Law, the Law of Public Accounting, the Law of Public Procurement, the Law of Public Servants and the Law of Local Self Management. In the second part of the article, the author describes the concrete effects of the new regulation of wages. The author emphasizes the legal status of the directors in the public sector according to the new "public wage system" and according to the regulation of the Law of Public Servants. The author concludes the article with remarks on the "ex lege" changes to the existing work-agreements for the directors in the public sector according to the new regulation.
