Figure 4: Standard model for public entity employment arrangements



Key features of the model are:

  • the board is appointed by the relevant minister or Governor-in-Council
  • the CEO is appointed and employed by the Board
  • the power to employ public entity staff is vested in the board and delegated to the CEO
  • staff are directly employed by the entity, through the CEO
  • staff are employed as public sector staff.

These arrangements align with the employment principles and mimic those used in the private sector.
