Judicial Awards Legal claims against the GOJ might have costly and unexpected implications if judgements are made in the favour of plaintiffs. Judicial awards pose a risk to the Government’s fiscal position, as an unplanned increase in expenditure could crowd out planned expenditure, resulting in new revenue measures, or necessitating additional borrowing. The MOFPS collaborates with the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) to monitor the progress of current and pending cases against the GOJ. Close monitoring ensures that proper expenditure planning is executed, and included in the budget should there be a ruling against the Government. Other Specific Risks Wage Settlements The public wage bill can pose a risk to GOJ expenditure in the event that wage settlements exceed budget and/or are not concluded in time for the budget. The Government’s current wage contract will come to an end in March 2021. As such, it is critical that the GOJ completes wage negotiations in order to avoid any settlements contrary to budgeted wage allocations. In the third quarter of FY 2019/20, the Government contracted a consulting firm to undertake a review of public sector compensation in order to determine the way forward. The review has been completed and recommendations have been made. The Government is currently in discussion with the unions.
