Fisheries and Oceans Pêches et Océans Canada Canada MEMORANDUM NOTE DE SERVICE Security Classification - Classification de sécurité To EL staff Unclassified/Non classifié À Equipment & Systems Maintenance Program (ESM) Our File – Notre référence Your File - Votre référence From Director Date De Corporate Compensation June 27, 2005 Subject Objet Classification review of EL positions – processing of retroactive payments The purpose of this memorandum is to provide you with information on the processing of the retroactive salary adjustments for the reclassification of the EL positions. It is anticipated that the retroactive payments for current employees should be processed and released in the regions at the same time by October 31, 2005 and for former employees by November 25, 2005. As you can understand the impact of this exercise on our Compensation Services, it is important to keep in mind that these timeframes may be affected by the signing of new collective agreements which Compensation Services has a legal obligation to implement. In order to assist you to better understand the impact on reclassification, we have attached “Q & A’s “which will provide you with useful information. We have also attached some information on reduction of tax withholding on lump-sum payments for the intention of contributing this payment to an RRSP. Please note that Compensation Services must receive all the required information prior to processing the payments. If a letter of authority is received after the payment has already been processed, the payment will not be cancelled, reversed or reissued for the specific purpose of refunding the income tax withheld from that payment. Compensation Services will not issue any estimates of amounts of your payments. You must forward your letter of authority to Compensation Services no later than August 26, 2005. Any letter received after that date will not be accepted and will be returned. .../2 Ottawa, Canada K1A 0E6 -2- To allow Compensation Services to devote their full attention to this significant activity, we ask for your cooperation in refraining from calling your Compensation Services to enquire about the status of your payment. We will be pleased to answer your questions once all payments have been issued. Your understanding is greatly appreciated. Original signed by Sylvie Joseph c.c.
