Other factors include equity, competitiveness, the prevailing salary structure in the public service and benchmark with similar organisations or those the organisation loses staff to.
In addition to the above guidelines, the commission shall consider among other factors impact of the salary package, ratio of allowance to the salary and the existing legal provisions in determining and advising on allowances and other remunerative benefits.
The draft regulations were drafted by the commission with the assistance of the Kenya Law Reform Commission.
Speaking when she unveiled the new guidelines at Laico Hotel in Nairobi on Saturday, Serem said that public service organisations would not be allowed to fix the salaries of experts whose remuneration is likely to be outside the public service remuneration structure.
"The concerned organisation shall refer the issue of the experts remuneration to the commission. This is meant to eliminate disharmony that is rampant within the public service," noted Serem.
