The inaugural annual report for Alberta Public Laboratories (APL) shows APL made great strides towards the stabilization and strengthening of the entire, now provincial, organization.
Change and transformation are two words that aptly describe the past year and the reality of the laboratory sector in Alberta. Over the past 12 months, the Alberta laboratory system has moved through a seismic change with the formation of APL and the transition of laboratory staff from four legacy organizations into one organization — thereby setting the stage to transform laboratory medicine in Alberta.
Alberta Public Laboratories is committed to transparency and has compiled with legislation to disclose compensation for employees receiving over the 2018 threshold amount of $129,809 in compensation as outlined in the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act.
The compensation information released is total annual compensation, which includes base salary, overtime, shift premiums, weekend premiums, on-call pay, sick pay, vacation pay, benefits and relevant severance. This disclosure also includes APL board members, regardless of the amount of compensation, severance or benefits they have received in the past year.
The PSCTA has updated their exemption request policy and advised employers to withhold information for six months from the date of the decision. This is to allow time for the applicant to apply to the court for a judicial review of the decision. An individual is entitled to re-apply for an exemption in subsequent years if the individual's facts or circumstances have changed and they have not already been disclosed.
