Application of WA Health Leave Management Strategy and WA Health Leave Management Policy to Senior Medical Practitioners
The WA Health Leave Management Strategy (Operational Directive 0538/14) and the WA Health Leave Management Policy (Operational Directive 0504/14) provide that staff can be given the option of cashing out of excess Annual Leave or excess Long Service Leave, leave in accordance with applicable industrial instruments. In the case of senior medical practitioners the industrial instruments are:
If excess Annual Leave (AL) or excess Long Service Leave (LSL) is cashed out, under an approved Employee Leave Management Plan (ELMP), any applicable Arrangement A private practice income allowance (PPIA) and professional development allowance (PDA) is also to be paid, in the same terms as would have applied if that period of AL or LSL cashed out had been taken rather than cashed out.
There is no entitlement to have any allowance, expressed as an annual allowance payable during a period of leave (including but not limited to PPIA and PDA) paid when accrued and pro rata leave is paid out on separation (e.g. expiry of fixed term contract or retirement) of employment.
