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 position abolishment directives apply to bargaining unit, opted out and excluded, and management Alberta Public Service employees. If a position abolishment 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 directive is information on who the position abolishment directive applies to, authority for the directive, the effective date, and the area within Alberta Public Service Commission responsible for its content. All directives are subject to applicable legislation.
