Ad Hoc Payments Public Sector
Members working in the public sector are reminded that it is your responsibility to ensure sick leave certificates are provided when a timesheet is lodged. The pay office is only authorised to pay you for sick leave if the required documentation is included (except for non-certified leave). If you are unable to drop your certificate into the workplace, you can take a photo or scan a copy and send it to your Nurse Unit Manager for inclusion with your timesheet. You can then submit your original documentation upon your return. Unfortunately, due to large numbers of people not complying with timesheet arrangements the pay office is increasingly reluctant to administer any ad hoc payments.
