14. A salary increase shall be granted to an officer on 1 April of each year, unless his performance for the year ending on 31 March is judged to be unsatisfactory. The employer’s evaluation, with reasons, shall be sent to the officer in writing during the reference period. There is no appeal from the evaluation.
The salary increase shall be 4% of the officer’s salary on 31 March, provided such increase does not take the officer’s salary above the maximum for the salary class of the position he holds.
Despite the second paragraph, as of 1 April 2019, the salary increase granted to an officer shall vary between 0% and 6%, provided such increase does not take the officer’s salary above the maximum for the salary class of the position he holds.
The terms of increase are established as follows:
(1) 0% where the officer does not meet the expectations;
(2) 2% where the officer partially meets the expectations;
(3) 4% where the officer meets the expectations;
(4) 6% where the officer far exceeds the expectations (the employer grants 6% to a maximum of 25% of officers on the rise).
Where an employer does not carry out the officer’s performance appraisal, a salary increase of 4% is granted to that officer.
An officer available for reinstatement who carries out the activities stipulated in the reinstatement plan shall be entitled to a salary increase as though he had worked for the employer on a full-time basis.
An officer whose position has been eliminated and who has elected for pre-retirement leave shall not receive a salary increase.
The salary increase of an officer who has held his position for less than one year on the date on which the salary increase applies, or who has changed employers during the reference period, shall be established according to the time actually worked in that position or in another officer or senior administrator position with the same employer or another employer during the year preceding 1 April.
An officer who has not worked for the whole of the year preceding 1 April because he is disabled, on leave without pay, on leave with deferred pay or on phased pre-retirement, shall be eligible for the salary increase according to the time actually worked during that year. However, for the purposes of computing the percentage of salary increase, a disabled officer is considered to have been at work for the first 6 months of disability.
For an officer holding a part-time position on 1 April who has worked for less than 50% of the time in the reference period, the salary increase shall be equal to 2% of his salary on 31 March.
