Support Staff who are actively employed by the University of Alberta on November 30, 2014 will receive a one-time payment up to a maximum of $400 which is subject to statutory deductions. Support Staff who worked full-time for the last 12 months are eligible for the full amount; others will be pro-rated. Lump sum payments will be paid to Support Staff via direct deposit on December 24. Resource Planning has confirmed that lump sum payments for base budgeted operating positions will be centrally funded. A one-time budget transfer will take place in January or February equivalent to the actual lump sum payments processed by Payroll & Benefit Services, Human Resource Services.
The payment comes as a result of the negotiated settlement from the 2012-2015 collective agreement as outlined in the Memorandum of Settlement. Support staff who are on leave will receive the payment on their first regular paycheque upon returning to work. Please see the Lump Sum Payment webpage for more information.
