Nearly 90% of all closed complaint files have been resolved without a hearing.

The Public Service Staffing Tribunal (the “Tribunal”) is an independent, quasi-judicial body established under the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) to address complaints related to internal appointments and lay-offs in the federal public service.

The Tribunal conducts hearings, settlement conferences and mediation sessions in order to resolve complaints. In fulfilling its mandate, the Tribunal fosters fair and transparent staffing practices, contributes to a public service that is based on merit, embodies linguistic duality and human rights, and strives for excellence.
