Salary Adjustments

Public sector excluded and executive employees are covered under specific provisions of the Public Sector Employers Act for compensation plans. Public Sector Employers' Council Secretariat (PSEC Secretariat) guidelines help public sector employers design and implement plans for excluded and executive compensation. These compensation plans are mandated to balance the need of employee recruitment and retention while staying within the guidelines set by the Province. This comprehensive approach moves public sector excluded employees to a performance-based culture where compensation decisions are based on merit rather than entitlement to an increase based on time served in the position. 

Excluded salary adjustments are based on the results of an annual performance review, where the leader assigns a performance rating based on the degree to which performance was achieved compared to agreed upon annual goals.  Performance percentages are based on the fiscal constraints placed on the university and provincial government mandates and the percentage may vary from year to year.
