UPDATE: HNELHD HealthRoster Pay Period Confirmation (PPC)




As reported Hunter New England Local Health District is the process of transitioning to HealthRoster, the new state-wide rostering system.

The District provided ASMOF with a draft Pay Period Confirmation Fact Sheet to review.

We raised the following concerns:

  1. the FactSheet said that if an error occurred leading to an underpayment, this would only be adjusted in the following fortnightly pay period. This is in breach of the relevant Awards which mandate that an underpayment is “equal to or greater than one day’s gross base pay” must be rectified within three working days
  2. The proposal to give employees “corrective counselling” if they were repeat offenders of not confirming their rosters within the required time frame.

After ASMOF raised these concerns, the District removed any reference to corrective counselling and has given ASMOF undertakings, that the process will not be used in a way to discipline staff or be used in a punitive way to raise in any performance appraisal.

You can read the revised FACT sheet and our letter to the Executive Director of Workforce, Kim Nguyen.
