Can PEOs receive performance pay?
Sub-clause 2.12.1 of the PEO determination sets out the maximum performance pay that may be available. However it should be noted that there are some instances where the Tribunal has consented to variations in relation to particular offices. These variations include:
* instances where access to performance pay has been removed, usually in association with an increase in available fixed remuneration; and
* instances where the Tribunal has consented to a higher potential performance pay percentage, in special circumstances.
It is an employing body's responsibility to maintain records of correspondence that includes the Tribunal's consent to such variations and ensure its decisions are consistent with the PEO Determination and any variations to which the Tribunal has consented.
The Tribunal regularly reminds employing bodies of these arrangements.
