Clause 6 of this Article provides for civil servants and public employees not directly engaged in medical expertise; medical officials and employees working in management and service activities at health service units in general (except for the subjects specified at Point b, Clause 5 of this Article), and medical officers At the office, unit or school, the head of the unit, based on the specific work and income sources to consider and decide, does not exceed the level of 20% compared to the current salary level or plus allowances level, leadership positions, excessive seniority allowances (if any) of the beneficiaries.
According to Ms. Le Ngoc Han, after the Center for Population - Family Planning was merged into the Medical Center, she continued to enjoy a 30% preferential allowance in July and August 2018. From September 2018, the preferential allowance has been reduced to 20%.
To find out whether the current preferential allowance level is correct or not, we recommend her to compare the tasks assigned by the Health Center to the task of the IV class population title (code V.08.10 .29) specified in Clause 1, Article 6 of Joint Circular 08/2016 / TTLT-BYT-BNV?
If she is assigned regularly, directly working as a population specialist - family planning, in accordance with the task of population class IV (code V.08.10.29), Point a applies. , Clause 5, Article 3 of Decree 56/2011 / ND-CP, she is entitled to a 30% allowance compared to the current salary level and grade.
If Ms. Han is assigned the task of administration, service and not directly professional on population - family planning, then Clause 6, Article 3 of Decree No. 56/2011 / ND-CP shall be applied. Based on the specific work and revenue sources, the Director of the Health Center shall consider and decide on the preferential allowance level but not exceeding 20% of the current salary level or grade.
Based on the work performed by medical officers, the director of the Medical Center decides the preferential allowance. An accountant is a person who performs accounting work, carries out financial revenues and expenditures, including salary and salary allowances; is not the person who has the right to decide the preferential allowance for medical officials and employees in the unit.
If she finds that the payment of the preferential allowance is not correct, she has the right to appeal the authority to settle first complaints about wages and preferential allowances is the Health Center Director.
