Know Your Rights : Claims under TESL


Many members are still surprised to learn that in addition to conference registration, accommodation and travel you can also claim for:

  • 1/3 of the costs of memberships in the colleges listed at Schedule 2 of the Award
  • Books and journals relevant to your specialty (they remain property of the Hospital)
  • Post-graduate course fees
  • Laptops and mobile internet capable devices (e.g. I-phone or I-Pad) where these have not otherwise been provided by the employer can be purchased in consultation with the relevant PHO Information Technology Unit (this also remains property of the PHO) - $2000 per year accumulating to a maximum $6000 a year over a 3 year cycle.

The relevant clause of the TESL policy directive is located on pages 11 and 12 (clause 5.2).

If you have any queries on the above, please contact the ASMOF office.
