Know Your Rights : Claims under TESL

26-Apr-2019

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). https://www1.health.nsw.gov.au/pds/ActivePDSDocuments/PD2016_043.pdf

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