In a recent announcement, a spokesman for Health Minister Mr. Lawrence Springborg said the Newsman government has decided to shed almost 125 Queensland Health payroll staff by the end of the year.
He added in his statements to AAP that over 1,000 workers have been manually engaged in the jobs of ensuring proper payments to the workers, out of which some staff members were appointed on a temporary basis to fix the bungled payroll system that was introduced by the Bligh government in 2010.
Since the system left thousands of health workers underpaid, overpaid or not paid at all, the government has now decided to reduce the number of workers and keep fewer payroll staff to work along with the automated system.
"All payroll staff have done a brilliant job in dealing with difficult issues but we have to reduce the number of people supporting the payroll as the system slowly improves", the spokesman said.
Chances are that the pay date is moved further in mid-October by a week to end the clash with rostering, he added. Also, the number of payroll staff can be bought down to 750 in the next 18 months, if sources are to be believed.
