Substitution and temporary promotion
The rules governing pay progression for substitutions and temporary promotions (i.e. limited term appointments at a higher grade) are the same as for permanent promotions.
Employees in post prior to the effective date of the Agreement on former pay rates and who are temporarily in a higher grade retain the former pay rates and other terms and conditions if they:
- are permanently promoted to the same grade which they held temporarily, with a break of service of one month or less or
- return to their former substantive position/grade in which case they will be credited for any increments earned during the period of the LTA
