Overtime Pay Expansion

Civil Service reforms boost all officers on pay band F, announces A-G.

As part of the ongoing and comprehensive civil service reforms being un­dertaken by the Government, the Attorney-General and Minister of Civil Service Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is pleased to announce that all officers on pay Band F are eligible for overtime pay as of April 18, 2018.

All non-teacher civil servants on Band F will now be compen­sated for all future hours worked overtime.

Overtime backpay will also be honoured for all of Fiji’s essen­tial health workers on Band F, starting from the time they began work under their new contracts.

“This expansion of overtime pay is another positive outcome of this Government’s ongoing civil service reforms and it is yet an­other way that, through bold and thoughtful change we have made the civil service a more attractive, merit-based career path that com­petes with the private sector to attract and retain top talent,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said. “We would especially like to thank the many essential workers in the health­care space who put in extra hours without knowing this announce­ment was coming; the back pay you will receive is recognition of your hard work and dedication.”

Previously, overtime compen­sation was only made available to nurses on Band F and other non-teacher civil servants on pay Band E.

This new and more inclusive policy is a part of the Civil Ser­vice Reform Management Unit’s extensive review of the terms and conditions of civil servants’ work to create a more equitable work­place where extra hours and work are properly compensated.
