Out of scope employees
Every Covenant Health site also has employees who are not part of a bargaining unit. These employees are considered out of scope, and separate terms and conditions of employment are applicable to them.
Make sure you are familiar with your collective agreement or terms and conditions. See your offer letter to confirm your employee group.
Paramedical professional — Bonnyville
If your employee group includes paramedical professionals and you will be working at Bonnyville Health Centre, you are covered under the Terms and Conditions for Paramedical Professional employees. You also must follow all Covenant Health policies and procedures. Contact your manager if you have questions.
To maintain active casual employment with us, casual employees are expected to be available and work enough shifts to remain oriented to their unit and competent in their area of work.
Your vacation entitlement depends on your employee group (collective agreement or terms and conditions of employment) and job details (full-time, part-time, casual and length of employment, if applicable).
Full-time and part-time employees accrue paid vacation every pay period and can see accumulated vacation hours in e-People and on their paycheque.
Casual employees receive a paid-out percentage of their regular earnings instead of accrued vacation and can see the amount paid out on each paycheque.
