Work Force Adjustment Appendix and you

You will and must be notified in writing by Parks Canada if a work force adjustmentsituation affects you. Note that the Work Force Adjustment Appendix only applies to indeterminate employees. As a result, term and casual employees may not be officially notified of planned changes.

Written notice will also include your status. If your status changes Parks Canada must advise you in writing.

  1. Affected.  If the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) decides your services may no longer be required, you will be notified in writing that you are affected (Definitions section). Note that this step might be skipped if the CEO decides that your services will no longer be required beyond a specified date. If that's the case, you'll receive written notice under 2, 3 or 4 outlined below. On the other hand, if your services are ultimately identified as necessary, you may not move any farther in the process or your affected status may be rescinded. (See the Affected Employees info sheet)

  2. Guarantee of a reasonable job offer. If the CEO decides your services are no longer required beyond a specific date and there is likely to be employment available for you, you will be given a guarantee of a reasonable job offer (1.1.6). This gives yousurplus priority until you receive a reasonable job offer. (See the guarantee of a reasonable job offer info sheet)

  3. No guarantee of a reasonable job offer. If the CEO decides your services are no longer required beyond a specific date and there is no likelihood of employment, you will not be given a guarantee of a reasonable job offer. Instead you will become anopting employee and will be given several options to choose from in order to help you make the transition to other employment (1.1.7). (See the No guarantee of a reasonable job offer info sheet.)

  4. Laid off. Some employees may ultimately be laid off. (See the Laid off employees info sheet.)

Alternate Service Delivery initiatives are addressed in a different manner than other types of work force adjustment. Please see the Alternate Service Delivery (ASD) info sheet for particulars on those situations (Part VII).
