Abstract/Citation: Introduces numerous amendments to the above-cited Act (BGBl. 560/1978, as amended), particularly in relation to retirement pensions, employment injury and sickness insurance for white collar employees. In a measure to be phased in until 1994, time spent in full-time education will no longer count towards entitlement to a pension. In addition, the period on which average wages are based for calculating a pension is reduced from 15 to 10 years, also on a phased-in basis until 1992. The Act further contains provisions on employment injuries involving persons over the age of 50, determination of invalidity and a series of transitional measures.
