Phoenix Damages Settlement leave compensation for former employees

We are pleased to announce that the procedure and forms to access the Phoenix Damages Settlement first tier leave compensation for former employees are now available by clicking on the link below.

Current LPs saw their leave banks credited this Summer. The leave compensation breaks down as follows: 15 hours representing two (2) days of annual leave for anyone who worked in the public service in 2016-17 and an additional 7.5 hours representing one (1) day of annual leave each for those employed in 2017-18 and 2018-19 for a possible total of 4 days regardless of if or how they were affected by Phoenix.

Former employees can now request a payment equivalent to the value of the additional leave allocated to current employees. The payment will be calculated using the last rate of pay shown in the Phoenix pay system at the time your claim is processed. If you worked at least one day in each of the fiscal years covered by the agreement, you can request a payment equivalent to:

2 days of leave for fiscal year 2016-2017
1 day of leave for fiscal year 2017-2018
1 day of leave for fiscal year 2018-2019
1 day of leave for fiscal year 2019-2020

New claims process for former employees:

As well, the Government has updated the page about compensation for damages here:

You may also find this link useful; it contains a description of, and links to, all available claims processes:

A reminder that these credits are only the starting point of compensation for damages caused by the Phoenix pay system.

Out-of-pocket costs may still be claimed through the Claims Centre, and additional compensation for substantial harms is still to come.  

And of course, you are still entitled to be paid what you are owed.

We recognize that no one would be getting any kind of compensation if it wasn't for the dedicated diligent work of your union representatives.

It is our firm belief that without unions, and without the AJC in particular, there would have been no compensation deal at all.  It was the AJC's policy grievance that got the whole government-wide damages negotiations rolling under our leadership and in partnership with our fellow bargaining agents.

The AJC will continue the necessary work to ensure that each and every one of our members receives every dollar that is owed to them.  

If you have any questions, please consult our FAQs on Phoenix Damages and on Phoenix Pay Issues or contact your regional Governing Council representative.
