Office of the Merit Commissioner

Upholding fair hiring in the BC Public Service

What We Do

As an independent Office, we make sure appointments to and within the BC Public Service are fair and based on merit. We do this by auditing appointments, and by reviewing staffing decisions as requested by unsuccessful employee applicants. We also make sure processes that result in just cause dismissals follow the required rules and procedures. We do this by reviewing the processes after all challenges are complete.
