PPSC Stops Conversion of Employees from Term to Indeterminate

On May, 25th, 2012, the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) informed the Association of Justice Counsel (AJC) of its decision to enforce Section 7.2 of the Term Employment Policy. This means that the accumulation of service towards indeterminate appointment at PPSC will be frozen until further notice as of June 1, 2012, as part of the three years of service required for conversion from term to indeterminate.

A similar decision was previously announced by the Department of Justice (DOJ), effective May 8.

On May 31, the AJC sent a letter to Denis Desharnais, Director General, Human Resources Directorate, PPSC requesting an urgent meeting to discuss the PPSC decision and its impact on LAs.

Needless to say, the AJC is very concerned with the cuts impacting all LAs, whether they are term or indeterminate employees. We find it particularly cruel for the employer to hire a term employee, lead this employee to believe that he/she will obtain indeterminate status after three years of continuous employment only to eliminate the conversion process during the course of employment.

The AJC will maintain and accentuate its efforts to oppose the cuts to the services provided by LAs. We will keep you up to date. In the meantime, you can read our FAQs for term employees if you have any further questions.
