There have been reported terminations of qualification differential payment Physiotherapists (PTs) since April 1, 2020. This has been reported to the HSPBA Classification Redesign Committee and, in turn, we have recently reported this to the HEABC.
There does not appear to be a difference in the way the HEABC and HSPBA interpret the application; however, we do have reason to believe that at least some of the health authorities are applying the terms incorrectly. This is resulting in the termination of monthly qualification differential to members who hold a post entry to practice Master’s degree relevant to and utilized as a part of their job.
If you are no longer receiving your qualification differential please contact your LRO Rhinnon Bray to discuss filing a grievance on your behalf.
