Dual remuneration

Information: Life events disclaimer

The following material is intended to provide you with information about some of the common types of change in employment situations and the effects it will have on your employment.

What is the meaning of dual remuneration?

Dual remuneration occurs when an employee is in receipt of salary for more than one position in the public service. For example, dual remuneration occurs if you are working part-time in two or more different positions.

What would be my rate of pay in the second position?

The rate of pay for your second position will be determined as if you had only one position. No consideration would be given to your other position(s).

How will the Pay Centre be notified that I have entered into a dual remuneration situation?

As part of the staffing process, the human resources section of the department offering you additional employment will be forwarding various pieces of information about your employment to the Pay Centre. In addition, once you have signed the Letter of Offer, you should contact the Pay Centre to ensure they are aware of the dual remuneration situation.

When will I receive my first cheque for my additional employment period?

As a newly appointed employee, your first pay cheque should be issued within 20 days of receipt of the attached forms at the Pay Centre:

  • letter of offer
  • provincial tax forms
  • employee questionnaire or equivalent
  • signed oath of allegiance
  • direct deposit enrollment form with a pay action request form

Refer to the Pay Centre service standards.

Will I receive a cheque for each employment or will the payment be combined?

If your second employment is in the same department you will receive one cheque. If you are employed in positions that are in different departments, you will receive a cheque from each department.

Will I receive additional information about the effects that my dual employment situation will have on my insurances and benefits?

The Pay Centre will provide you with a letter outlining options available to you and the effects that your dual remuneration situation will have on various benefits, insurances and your pension plan.

Can I use leave that I have earned in one position for time off in another position?

In a dual remuneration situation, leave earned in one position cannot be used in the other position(s).
