Compensation Policies are the collection of rules that govern the calculation of salary and benefit entitlement for all individuals employed by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. Currently there are 24 Compensation Policies and these are listed below:
These policies are found in the Compensation Policy and Procedures Manual (CPPM) on file in the Strategic Human Resource Management Divisions. The Human Resource Secretariat (HRS) is in the process of updating these policies and as new policies are approved by Treasury Board they will be uploaded on the HRS website and removed from the CPPM.
The determination of salary and benefit entitlements for all individuals employed by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador must be in accordance with the Compensation Policies approved by Treasury Board.
These policies apply to all employees of the core public service with the exception of those employees on the Executive Pay Plan. Bargaining unit employees should consult their respective collective agreement and where there is a conflict, the collective agreement shall prevail.
Treasury Board, through section 8 of the Financial Administration Act, has the authority to apply any of its compensation policies to Government's Agencies, Boards and Commissions (ABCs) with the exception of Nalcor, Memorial University and the Research and Development Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador.
As compensation polices are updated it will be noted whether or not the new policy will apply to ABCs. If the policy is to apply to ABCs then departments will notify their ABCs accordingly. Any ABC who indicates that they are not currently compliant is directed to submit an implementation plan which ensures compliance or obtain support from their respective Minister to seek Treasury Board approval for an exemption to the policy, if they deem that a particular policy is inappropriate for their operation.
