Phoenix payroll backlog could last years: CBC

OTTAWA  It may be another three to five years before the federal government clears a backlog of payroll problems with its Phoenix pay system, CBC has reported.

Citing an internal government briefing note from last August, CBC also said government officials think it could take at least 10 years for the system to reach “overall stability” and that uncertainly around the pay system is hurting the government’s efforts to recruit and retain employees.
