Virtually all employees are directly affected at one time or another by National Joint Council rates and allowances. Anyone who travels on government business or who has relocated to take a new job knows the importance of various entitlements established under NJC directives. For some employees, NJC rates and allowances represent a very substantial component of overall compensation. For employees who serve outside Canada or at isolated posts within Canada, these benefits address unique attributes of the communities where they work or provide reimbursement for high costs and special expenses.
The Guide to National Joint Council Rates and Allowances provides employees and managers with a brief description of each rate or allowance, how it is determined or calculated, as well as the process used to review and modify the rate or allowance from time to time.
