Royal Canadian Mounted Police Casual Employment Regulations (14-17)

2014-12-11

The Public Service Commission (PSC) is pleased to announce that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Casual Employment Regulations came into force on November 28, 2014.

The Enhancing Royal Canadian Mounted Police Accountability Act has amended the Public Service Employment Act by adding provisions that allow casual workers to be appointed at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) for more than 90 working days in a calendar year in circumstances prescribed by the PSC, and that allow the PSC to review the exercise of the authority on an annual basis.

The regulations provide that the use of this new authority is based on the premise of an unforeseen situation. They also include definitions of “major investigation”, “major event” and “operation”.

Should you or your corporate staffing consultant require additional information, please contact your organization’s strategic staffing consultant.
