Striking Doctors Removed From Payroll

Health Services Board (HSB) Chairperson, Dr Paulinas Sikhosana told the ZBC News that the doctors who had withdrawn their services are already off the payroll after their industrial action had gone for over 14 days.

The current health sector regulations state that any health worker who fails to report for duty for 14 consecutive days is struck off the payroll.

Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) Secretary General, Dr Anele Mthabisi Bhebhe alleged that their accounts were credited with what seemed to be slashed salaries for December but two hours later, the transactions were reversed. A letter dated 14 December 2018 and signed by Acting Permanent Secretary for Health and Child Care, Dr Robert Mudyiradima indicated that the issue was caused by some excess deductions on the employees’ pay as you earn (PAYE), adding that the deductions have since been reversed and the money will be credited into the affected members’ accounts.
