Compensation Guidelines for Employees in the Public Sector

The Public Sector Employers’ Council (PSEC) Secretariat provides guidelines to help public sector employers design and implement plans for excluded and executive employees. 

The PSEC Secretariat plays a central role in coordinating excluded and executive compensation, which accounts for approximately 18 percent of B.C.’s public sector compensation costs. 

The PSEC Secretariat works with employers to promote a cost-conscious approach to recruitment and retention of excluded and executive leaders through consistent and appropriate compensation levels and practices. 

The PSEC Secretariat also provides guidelines with specific instructions on how to disclose executive compensation for the CEO/President and top four decision-makers in a public sector organization. 

Public sector employers must also disclose compensation and report on executive and senior employee excluded compensation.
