Departmental Pay

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will make it her policy to ensure that those temporary and permanent employees at the same grade in her Department who are paid at an hourly rate are paid at the same rate. (244397)

The policy in the Department is for all employees whether they are permanent or temporary contracts to be treated the same in terms of pay. However as each grade has an associated pay range with minimum and maximum pay points, all employees in the same grade, whatever their contractual status, will not necessarily be paid at the same hourly rate.
