If I have a dispute about my employment at the hospital what is the process to resolve the issue?

Resolving disputes within your hospital involves a process of increasing the levels of engagement, should the matter not be resolved. The process is detailed in clause 12 contained in the AMA Victoria - Victorian Public Health Sector Medical Specialists Enterprise Agreement 2013.

A shortened version of the steps are:

  1. You discuss the issue with your immediate supervisor.
  2.  If the issue is not resolved at that level, the matter can then be taken up with the Director of Medical Services and include AMA representation.
  3.  If it is still not resolved the matter can be referred to the Fair Work Commission for conciliation.
  4.  Finally, if still not resolved in conciliation the matter may be determined by arbitration by the Fair Work Commission. 


Importantly the obligations for both you and the hospital are that:

  • disputes will be dealt with expeditiously
  • work is to continue according to usual practice whilst the dispute is being dealt with
  • no-one is prejudiced by the continuance of normal work.
