Introduction

Alberta Public Service Human Resource directives set out the general entitlements, benefits, and authority that apply in the administration of human resources in government organizations under the Public Service Act.

Unless otherwise specified, these classification directives apply to bargaining unit, opted out and excluded, and management Alberta Public Service employees. If a classification directive addresses a topic that is also covered by the Collective Agreement, bargaining unit employees will be governed by the Collective Agreement.

At the bottom of each classification directive is information on who the directive applies to, authority for the directive, the effective date, and the area within the Alberta Public Service Commission responsible for its content. All directives are subject to applicable legislation.
