The report covers city and library employees, but not the Guelph Police Service, which reports separately to the province.

List of $100,000 earners at city hall up in 2013

City hall says a change in vacation policy is the main reason that 35 city employees were added in the past year to the list of city employees making over $100,000.
The city’s annual report on $100,000 earners, required under provincial legislation at this time of year, says 144 of the city’s 2,069 full- and part-time employees exceeded this threshold in 2013 – an increase of 35 from 2012.
However, 32 of the 35 employees were on the 2013 list “primarily as a result of the approved payouts for earned vacation balances following council’s approval of a new vacation policy,” the report says. It says these 32 employees were from the city’s Non-Union & Management Employee group. The purpose of the new vacation policy was to “migrate all staff to one vacation practice with the non-union employee group.”
Public organizations subject to the province’s Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act must report annually the salary paid plus additional compensation such as overtime, premium pay and retroactive adjustments. “This means that amounts reported to the province can be more than an employee’s ‘base’ salary,” says the city report.
The report covers city and library employees, but not the Guelph Police Service, which reports separately to the province.
The Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act has been in effect since 1996, with the same $100,000 threshold. Public sector salaries will be published on a provincial website during the first two weeks of April.
