Terms & Conditions - Management & Non-Union Employees

Terms and Conditions of Employment and Compensation Framework for Management & Non-Union Employees - Version 3: April 1, 2018 This document was initially created on October 18, 2015 with the creation of Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA). It provides management and non-union employees with an overview of the Terms and Conditions of their employment with the NSHA. In cases where there is a separate NSHA policy that may impact or supplement these term and conditions, the policy will be referred to here. If a term or condition set out in a former/predecessor District Health Authority policy is not replaced by a similar term or condition in this document or a corresponding NSHA policy, that term or condition may apply until new policies come into effect for the NSHA. Last updated August 14, 2018.
