Overview of JSSCS
The Joint Secretariat for the Advisory
Bodies on Civil Service and Judicial Salaries and Conditions
of Service (JSSCS) provides dedicated support service to the
following four advisory bodies of the Hong Kong Special Administrative
Region Government -
The four advisory bodies provide independent advice to the Chief
Executive on the principles and practices governing pay, conditions
of service and salary structure of the non-directorate civil
service, the disciplined services, the directorate and the judicial
officers respectively. The decision as to whether the advice
should be accepted rests with the Government.
Since 1 September 2011, JSSCS has also been providing secretariat support to the Advisory Committee on Post-service Employment of Civil Servants. The Committee advises the Chief Executive and Secretary for the Civil Service on all applications for post-service outside work from directorate officers and publishes an annual report on the work of the Committee.
The Pay Survey and Research Unit (PSRU) of JSSCS is a fact-finding
and data analysis organisation which provides information relevant
to the determination of civil service remuneration. The annual
pay trend survey is one of the main activities of PSRU. Findings
of the survey have to be validated by the Pay
Trend Survey Committee.
