P.C. 1980-3475 1980-12-18

Whereas the Public Service Commission has decided that it is not practicable nor in the best interests of the Public Service to apply the Public Service Employment Act to persons who are not ordinarily required to work more than one-third of the normal scheduled daily or weekly hours of work established for persons doing similar work;

Whereas the Public Service Commission has further decided that it is not practicable nor in the best interests of the Public Service to apply the Public Service Employment Act to persons who were employed under the authority of the Part-time Employees Exclusion Approval Order, C.R.C., c. 1350 and the Part-time Employment Regulations, C.R.C., c. 1351, and who are ordinarily required to work more than one-third of the normal scheduled daily and weekly hours of work established for persons doing similar work but not more than 15 hours per week;

And Whereas the Public Service Commission is of the opinion that it is desirable to make the annexed Regulations prescribing how such persons shall be dealt with.

Therefore, His Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Public Service Commission, is pleased hereby, effective January 1st, 1981,

  • (a) pursuant to section 39 of the Public Service Employment Act, to revoke the Part-time Employees Exclusion Approval Order, C.R.C., c. 1350 and to make the annexed Order approving the exclusion by the Public Service Commission of persons who are not ordinarily required to work more than one-third of the normal scheduled daily or weekly hours of work established for persons doing similar work and of certain other persons from the operation of the Public Service Employment Act in substitution therefor; and

  • (b) pursuant to subsection 35(1) of the Public Service Employment Act, to revoke the Part-time Employment Regulations, C.R.C., c. 1351, and to make the annexed Regulations respecting Part-time work in the Public Service in substitution therefor.
