Master Agreement Between the Government of the Province of Alberta and the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees

Article 14

Acting Incumbent

14.01 To receive acting incumbency pay an Employee shall be designated by a senior official at his place of work to perform the principal duties of the higher level position for a minimum period of five (5) consecutive work days, during which time he may also be required to perform some of the duties of his regular position. On completion of the minimum five (5) day qualifying period in an acting incumbency position, an Employee shall be eligible for acting incumbency pay for the total period of acting incumbency, including the five (5) day qualifying period. Acting provisions shall not apply where an Employee is designated only limited additional duties.
14.02 Where an Employee is designated to be an acting incumbent in a position, his salary may be determined in accordance with the following provisions:
(a) if he is designated to act in a position in a classification with an assigned grade the maximum of which is less than one (1) increment higher than the maximum of his current grade assignment, his acting salary shall be the lowest period in the new grade that exceeds his current salary provided the maximum salary assigned the classification is not exceeded;
(b) if he is designated to act in a position in a classification with an assigned grade the maximum of which is at least one (1) increment higher than the maximum of his current pay grade assignment, his acting salary shall be the lowest period in the new grade that exceeds his current salary, except if the increase is less than one (1) increment, in which case his salary shall be adjusted to the period next higher than the lowest period that exceeds his current salary provided the maximum salary assigned the classification is not exceeded;
(c) if he is designated to be an acting incumbent from a classification with no pay grade assignment to a classification with a pay grade assignment, his salary is that period in the new grade which is higher than his current salary, except if this increase is less than 4%, in which case his salary is the next higher period.
14.03 It is understood that normally only one acting incumbent may be designated as a result of any one Employee's absence.
14.04 When an Employee who has been the acting incumbent of another position returns to his regular position, his salary shall be readjusted to that which would be in effect if he had continuously occupied that position.
14.05 The designation of acting incumbency shall normally not exceed a period of one (1) year.
