The Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act requires public sector bodies to publicly disclose compensation and severance provided to an employee if it is more than $125,000 in a calendar year, as adjusted according to the Act. In addition, other non-monetary employer-paid benefits and pension are required to be reported.
In 2016, the threshold was adjusted to $126,375. In 2017, the threshold was adjusted to $127,765.
The statement of remuneration must be published by June 30 each year for remuneration paid in the previous calendar year. The first posting was required by June 30, 2016.
In preparation for the disclosure requirements, the OIPC completed an Access Impact Assessment:
