Permanent employees are paid a salary or an hourly wage. Salary employees are placed on a six-step grid according to their skills, knowledge, and education. Salaries are adjusted annually based on the council approved Cost of Living Allowance.
Hourly permanent employees have a four-step wage grid which is adjusted periodically based on the council agreed Cost of Living Allowance.
The grids are designed to allow a fully-trained employee with above-average performance to obtain the last grid step by year five.
The County of Newell periodically conducts a salary review to compare our salaries to other municipalities and adjusts salaries accordingly.
