This study investigated factors influencing employee turnover in the Uganda public sector; taking a case study of Civil Aviation Authority. Specifically the study objectives were to: investigate whether rewards given to staff in the form of salaries and incentives influence employee turnover, examine whether job security affects employee turnover and assess whether employee involvement has a bearing on employee turnover in Civil Aviation Authority. The findings revealed that rewards, job security and employee involvement have a significant effect on employee turnover at the Uganda Civil Aviation Authority. It was established that an increase in remuneration and job security significantly reduce employee turnover. On the basis of the findings it was recommend that Uganda Civil Aviation Authority improves rewards in the form of staff remuneration and fringe benefits. It was also recommended that workers’ jobs should be guaranteed so as to curb staff turnover which was quite rampant at the time of the study.
