I work in a public hospital. I am pregnant and getting concerned about being able to do my usual duties for much longer. Is it possible I can work somewhere else to keep me at work?
Yes. Clause 34 A (x) of the Public Health System Nurses’ and Midwives’ (State) Award sets out that due to an illness or risk associated with your pregnancy, the employer is obliged – as far as is practicable – to provide employment in some other position that you are able to perform. The alternative position must be as close as possible in status and salary as your substantive position.
You'll automatically become a member of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation
