A recent report has uncovered that the health department in Queensland has decided to introduce a new plan so as to solve the issue of overpayments arising due to the existing pay date.
While until now, the pay system includes paying to employees after three days of end of their roster. As per the announcement made by Health Minister Lawrence Springborg today, the wages would now be provided after 10 days of roster.
He says that the decision is fair enough as experts have suggested it would help in ensuring accuracy of payments to workers. It is being said that the new rule would make realize less number of errors than presently noted.
Mr. Springborg adds that it is the only reason that loans have been planned to be provided to all 84,000 workers. The staff would be able to easily manage its financial obligations with the loan to be given on the basis of two weeks' wages.
However, the law would probably demand 10,000 additional forms in each pay cycle, but income would remain the same. Also, the problem of extra spending of around $1.7 million because of overpayments affecting some 4000 people could also be solved, the report concludes.
