Administrative Guidelines - Growth Plan
Training Placement: Range 9, Step 1 up to 6 Months
Until training is completed (up to approx. 6 months). After completion of training, employees move to the appropriate level of the model.
The growth model applies to employees appointed to positions established at the Commercial Transport Inspector R18 level (CTI R18). Ministries that are able to attract fully qualified and experienced applicants to the CTI R18 level may hire directly to the CTI R18 level. Appointment to and movement through the growth model will be per the growth plan set out in this document. The Employer will determine when the growth model is required.
It is the responsibility of the Employer to determine the staffing qualifications when hiring for CTI R18 positions inclusive of the staffing qualifications for each level of the growth model to which individual applicants will be placed.
Training activities such as the Justice Institute training program for Commercial Transport Inspector Trainees at the Ministry of Solicitor General will be compensated at a placement rate during the training, which is a prerequisite for placement at the appropriate level in the growth model. Placement in the growth model is not a 'reclassification' for the purpose of salary treatment on placement in the model upon completion of the training phase.
Increments are not applicable until an employee attains the CTI R18 level. The increment date shall be set at the date of attaining the CTI R18 level and the first increment will occur one year later, consistent with the Employer’s policy on increments.
Each level on the growth model is to be 'the equivalent of 6 months full time employment'. Once placed on the model, employees who meet ministry standards of performance will be eligible to move to the next level of the model at the end of the shift during which 913 hours paid at the straight time rate are accumulated.
If 913 hours are reached in the middle of the day, the new level will be applied at the end of the shift and accumulation of hours toward the next level will start at the beginning of the following work shift.
