Michailidou: Transparency and not hiring relatives


“Transparency and meritocracy in the recruitment process, in contrast to what happened in previous years”, stressed the Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, Domna Michailidou, today in Parliament, as indicated in a statement by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.

“Regarding the issue of the blind teacher at the Center for Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind”, Ms. Michailidou clarified that, as mentioned in the official letter of the Panhellenic Association of the Blind, this employee was hired on a fixed-term contract exclusively to fill a position worker on sick leave. In particular, she was hired by the “Protoporia” Civil Non-Profit Company and not by the public body KEAT and ended when her colleague returned from her sick leave. The same is confirmed by the Panhellenic Association of the Blind in a letter, proving the unfoundedness of the allegations of the question “.

“Regarding the unworthiness that prevailed in the recruitments”, the deputy minister revealed, according to the announcement of the ministry, “the 14 recruitments of relatives of 1st and 2nd degree employees of KEAT, that had taken place in the Creative Employment Center of the institution in the past. The Undersecretary stressed that the necessary reforms had been made and that this regime was completely overthrown today. “

As Mrs. Michailidou clarified, “all recruitments are now made with meritocracy and with priority to our fellow citizens with disabilities. For this and for the first time, the person in charge of KDAP is blind. In addition, three young people with visual impairments are doing their internship at the KEAT call center. The administration of KEAT gives opportunities to people with visual impairments. So finding a contract for a blind teacher is a priority, as soon as a position arises that corresponds to its subject “.

Finally, Ms. Michailidou stated: “We are correcting the mistakes of the past, as 14 relatives of the AD and B grade of the employees were hired at the KDAP of the Center for Rehabilitation and Training of the Blind. Today, all recruitments are made with transparency and meritocracy criteria. We ensure that the most suitable educate and take care of our fellow citizens with disabilities! Not the relatives of the existing employees “.
