• Parliamentary staff are independent of the Public Service Commission.  All matters relating to employment issues are under the direct control of the Speaker and the Clerk.
  • Since  2010,  parliamentary  staff  have  been  recruited  through interview  committees established by the Speaker. Based on the committee’s recommendation, the Speaker then makes a recommendation  for  appointment  to  the  Legislative  Assembly (clause 19 of the Legislative Assembly Act).
  • Clause19 of the Legislative Assembly Act further states that the Clerk is responsible for setting the general guidelines for staff. A copy of the Staff  Guidelines is available from the parliamentary library.
  • The Staff Guidelines is an important  instrument  because it provides the  basis as to how the Office deals with work related issues.
