The Ecuadoran 2010 Public Service Organic Law ((Spanish) Ley orgánica del servicio público) was on 30 September 2010 a draft law that intended to regulate the Ecuadoran public service, by creating a standarised base for the payment of compensation to civil servants. The drtaft has gone through several constitutional steps to becoming a law. As of 2 October 2010, it had not yet become a law.[1] The law was one of the elements in the 2010 Ecuador coup d'état attempt.

Important and/or controversial elements of the law[edit]

Some police officers felt that the law negatively affected their labor rights.[citation needed]

Legal progress of the law project[edit]

President Rafael Correa proposed the law on 2 July 2010.[2] The law passed through first and second parliamentary readings and a plenary approval.[1] President Correa's response on 3 September was that he made a partial objection to the law proposal.[3] As of 2 October 2010, the law had not yet reached a final status.[1]

Relation to the attempted coup d'état[edit]

The law was claimed by participants in the 2010 coup d'état attempt against Correa to be the reason for the attempted coup d'état.[citation needed]
