Alberta Health Services is committed to transparency and has complied with legislation to disclose compensation for employees receiving over the 2016 threshold amount of $126,375 in compensation as outlined in the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act. The threshold for the previous disclosure, reflecting compensation for 2015, was $125,000.
The compensation information released is total annual compensation, which includes base salary, overtime, shift premiums, weekend premiums, on-call pay, sick pay, vacation pay, benefits and relevant severance. This disclosure also includes AHS board members, regardless of the amount of compensation, severance or benefits they have received in the past year.
AHS is a large organization — the largest health care organization in the country. The AHS disclosure list includes approximately 2.3 per cent of AHS staff, or about 2,400 employees. Approximately 45 per cent of this group is unionized staff, including registered nurses, paramedics, technicians, psychologists, mental health therapists and pharmacists, among others. 55 per cent is non-union staff, including senior leaders, unit managers, clinical leads, pathologists, dentists, physicians, nurse practitioners, lab scientists and medical leaders.
AHS regularly posts expenses of the AHS executive team and board on the external website. AHS executive team and board salaries and total severance information are also disclosed as part of our annual audited AHS consolidated financial statements.
