The Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board does not have jurisdiction to hear grievances based upon the term employment policy and/or the non-renewal of term employment.
 
The decision to renew or not renew falls squarely within the discretion of the department.

As expiry and/or non-renewal of term employment do not constitute a lay-off pursuant to the collective agreement, there is no right of complaint under section 65 of the Public Service Employment Act.
