Higher Duties Allowance

In a competency based salary structure, a member will be paid at a rate based on Medical level, rank loading and the position that they fill (ie. MO will be paid for a Medical level only if that MO has attained that Medical level and when posted to a position requiring that Medical level). Therefore, payment of Higher Duties Allowance (HDA) will be determined by the following considerations:

  • Unless qualified for the higher level, HDA can be paid for the rank component of salary only.
  • If a member is qualified for the higher Medical level and is expected to fulfill the full range of duties of the position, then the member can be paid at the bottom increment of the next higher level.
  • Unless promoted into the HDA position, the member will revert to their normal rate upon completion of the HDA.
