Higher Duties Allowance – Your Entitlements

We have been informed that at a recent presentation, senior management decided that your Higher Duties Allowance (HDA) will not be paid if the worker has acted up for under two weeks. This decision is in breach of the TfNSW Award which states:

‘31.2 Employees who are authorised by the Employer to perform all the duties of a Higher Grade position for 5 or more consecutive days, shall not be paid less than the minimum salary of the higher graded position’

If you have acted up for 5 or more consecutive days and have not received your HDA, please contact the PSA for assistance. Your Award sets the minimum expectations from your employer, management cannot unilaterally decide not to pay out an entitlement. The PSA will also raise this issue at our next meeting with management.
