ULaval faces criticism for maintaining post-employment package for former rector

June 16, 2017

Université Laval has faced criticism for keeping a post-employment compensation regime that will see its former rector Denis Brière retain 75% to 100% of his executive salary for six years if he remains employed by the institution. “Six years of his full rector's salary, it makes no sense, it's indecent, it's shameful, it's outrageous,” said Éric Caire of the Coalition avenir Québec. The CAQ has reportedly called on the Minister responsible for Higher Education, Hélène David, to establish a framework for the working conditions of university leaders. The board of directors of ULaval announced Tuesday that it was revising the terms of remuneration following the term of its new president, Sophie D'Amours, who will be eligible for her executive salary for only one year after finishing as rector.
