SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES ACT 1975

DETERMINATION VARIATION

SENIOR LEGAL OFFICERS

 

Pursuant to section 6(1)(d) of the Salaries and Allowances Act 1975 the Salaries and Allowances Tribunal determines the remuneration to be paid to the holders of senior legal offices included in the Special Division of the Public Service.

The Tribunal has for a considerable time maintained a structure for senior legal officers which is different from that which applies to other Special Division and Prescribed Office holders.  In reviewing its determination of 1 April 2010, the Tribunal has decided at this time to maintain the existing alignment of salaries for senior legal officers.

Accordingly, the Tribunal has determined that from 1 July 2010, senior legal officers in the Special Division of the Public Service are to receive a general increase of 2.5 per cent.
