To declare PMU guidelines with regards to Demoting Employees and ensure uniform interpretation and application of this policy.


A demotion is considered to be a move to a position with a lower level of responsibility with a lower salary range. Normally, the Employee's salary is generally decreased to a salary within the lower salary range. A demotion may occur as the result of a disciplinary action or when the Employee’s contract is up for renewal and it is found that the Employee would be more appropriately placed in a lower level of responsibility.

Salary Determination

Employees who have been demoted will receive a salary decrease.
