The Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act is a provincial law that came into effect in December, 2015. The law requires that all public sector bodies, including public post-secondary institutions, disclose the compensation and non-monetary benefits of all employees whose total compensation and severance is greater than the established threshold in a given year: the threshold for 2018 is $129,809. The university must also disclose any compensation provided to members of the Board of Governors that is related to their responsibilities as members of the Board of Governors.
MacEwan University employees are paid biweekly. This normally results in 26 pay dates per year; however, during 2018 the regular payroll cycle resulted in 27 pay dates. Although there were no associated changes to rates of pay, employees will record higher compensation during 2018 due to the 27th pay date.
If you have questions about the university’s disclosure, please contact Karen Boros, Director of Employee and Labour Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org. Media inquiries should be directed to Samantha Power, Media Relations Advisor, at 780-497-5586.
