3. PROCEDURES - INSTRUCTIONS
3.1 Entitlement Code 227 (Terminable Allowance) is to be used for both the PI and TI Terminable Allowance. This allowance is a monthly entitlement that covers the period January 1, 1999, to June 1, 1999. The corresponding rate base for entitlement code 227 is "0" (Lump Sum).
3.2 The Public Service Staff Relations Act requires that each employee receives all pay adjustments within 90 calendar days of the signing of the collective agreement. Consequently, as this allowance forms part of the collective agreement it must be paid within the 90-day implementation period which expires on June 24, 1999.
3.3 Departments are responsible to input the allowance as there is currently no automation for this entitlement.
4.1 Any request for information should be addressed to your Public Works and Government Services Canada Compensation Services Office.
