In 2021-2022, Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) continued to evolve as an integrated province-wide public laboratory system, and the achievements of our medical laboratory professionals throughout the year were remarkable. Ongoing challenges related to the COVID-19 response, significant staffing shortages across the lab system, and preparations for the transition of community lab services provided unique challenges, but also opportunity to build APL’s brand and organizational culture and highlight the critically important role lab services play across the healthcare spectrum. It is inspiring to see how our staff have risen to meet these challenges through living our values of Kindness, Inclusion, Innovation, Agility and Accuracy. Read more about the achievements of APL’s staff in our 2021-22 annual report.
Alberta Precision Laboratories is committed to transparency and has compiled with legislation to disclose compensation for employees receiving over the 2022 threshold amount of $141,183 in compensation as outlined in the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act.
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. In some cases, the amount of compensation disclosed reflects the significant amount of additional hours and overtime that many health care workers have worked responding to demands on the health system. This disclosure also includes APL board members, regardless of the amount of compensation, severance or benefits they have received in the past year.
The PSCTA has updated their exemption request policy and advised employers to withhold information for six months from the date of the decision. This is to allow time for the applicant to apply to the court for a judicial review of the decision. An individual is entitled to re-apply for an exemption in subsequent years if the individual's facts or circumstances have changed and they have not already been disclosed. Please visit https://www.alberta.ca/assets/documents/pcsta-exemption-policy-process-ind.pdf for more information regarding exemption requests.
