The Uganda Public Service salaries have been revised and the new Uganda Public Service salary scale 2022 has been released. This new salary scale will come into effect from 1st July 2022 and will be applicable to all public service employees.
The new salary scale is based on the recommendations of the Uganda Salary Review Commission, which was appointed in 2019 to review the existing salary structure and recommend appropriate changes. The commission reviewed the existing salary structure and recommended a revised salary structure for the public service.
The new Uganda Public Service salary scale 2022 is based on the new job evaluation system that has been introduced by the government. This system categorizes jobs into five levels based on their complexity and the responsibilities associated with them. The new salary scale includes five salary grades ranging from grade A to grade E, with grade A being the highest and grade E being the lowest.
Grade A represents the most senior positions in the public service and is paid at the highest salary level. Grade B is for middle-level positions and is paid at a lower salary level. Grade C is for junior-level positions and is paid at a lower salary level. Grade D is for entry-level positions and is paid at the lowest salary level. Grade E is for the lowest-ranking positions and is paid at the lowest salary level.
The new salary scale also includes additional allowances and benefits such as housing, transport, and medical. For example, a grade A employee will receive a monthly allowance of UGX 280,000 for rent, UGX 300,000 for transport, and UGX 250,000 for medical.
The new salary scale is intended to ensure that public service employees are adequately compensated for the work they do and to provide them with a better quality of life. It is also intended to ensure that the public service is able to attract and retain the best talent.
Overall, the Uganda Public Service salary scale 2022 is an important step in ensuring that public service employees are adequately compensated for their work and to ensure that the public service is able to attract and retain the best talent.
