Criteria for employee without dependants or employee with dependants rates
Eligible SOs and SCs shall, subject to this appendix, be eligible for the allowances and benefits of the directive at the rates and entitlements established for the home port and shall be considered
- employee without dependants, if they have no dependants residing with them at the home port,
- employee without dependants, if they reside at another isolated post or at a location that would qualify as an isolated post, or
- employee with dependants, if they have dependants residing with them at the home port.
Limitations to rates and entitlements
The living costs differential shall be calculated as follows:
- for employee without dependants status, 35 per cent of the employee with dependants rate for the period they are supplied with meals or an allowance in lieu, and 100 per cent of the employee without dependants rate for the period they are not supplied with meals or an allowance in lieu, or
- for employees with dependants status, 70 per cent of the employee with dependants rate for the period they are supplied with meals or an allowance in lieu, and 100 per cent of the employee with dependants rate for the period they are not supplied with meals or an allowance in lieu.
When possible and subject to periodic adjustments as a result of changes to the levels or rates, an average annual rate may be calculated, based on the above, for the payment of the living costs differential and employees may be paid the same bi-weekly rate during the fiscal year. If the employees leave the home port or the public service during the fiscal year, the living cost differential payable for the period they were at the home port will be recalculated and the necessary adjustments will be made.
The environment allowance, fuel and utilities differential and other entitlements of the directive shall be paid and administered in the same manner as for any other employees at the home port, except that the maximum benefits payable for those eligible SOs and SCs who do not reside at the home port are those payable to eligible SOs and SCs located at the home port.
The maximum allowable expenses, pursuant to sections 2.1 (Non-elective medical or dental treatment), 2.2 (Compassionate travel and expenses), 2.3 (Bereavement travel expenses), and 2.4 (Vacation travel expenses), for eligible SOs and SCs who reside and travel from isolated posts other than their home port, shall be the lesser of the maximum allowable expenses for travelling from the isolated post where they reside and the maximum allowable expenses that would have been allowed had they travelled from the home port.
The amount of relocation expenses that may be reimbursed to eligible SOs and SCs pursuant to parts III and IV of the directive shall be the amount of relocation expenses incurred in relocation from the isolated posts where they reside or the relocation expenses that would have been incurred had they relocated from the home port, whichever is the lesser.
