22. An officer who agrees, temporarily and in addition to his regular position, to hold another full-time or part-time position of officer or senior administrator with the same employer or another employer shall receive lump sum remuneration, provided however that the positions held in plurality are separate positions in the employer’s organization plan. The lump sum remuneration shall be established by the employer in question, taking into account the extent and similarity of the tasks and the difference between the evaluation class of the second position and that of the regular position held by the officer. It may vary between 10% and 15% of the salary of the officer holding a second position.
The officer may not hold a second position that falls under his own direct or indirect authority.
The plurality of positions may be held simultaneously by more than one officer. In such a case, notwithstanding the first paragraph, the percentage of the lump-sum remuneration paid to each officer may be lower than that of 10% as set out in the first paragraph in order that it does not exceed, for all the officers holding a plurality of positions taken together, a total of 15% of the maximum for the salary class of the second position.
There is no appeal from the lump sum remuneration established for a plurality of positions held by one or more officers. The same applies where the plurality is divided among several officers.
The plurality of positions may last for a period ranging from 2 to 18 months subject to an extension authorized by the Minister. However, where an officer replaces a senior administrator or officer on disability leave or parental leave, the replacement may be for the duration of the period of absence.
