PSAB appeal dismissed for lack of jurisdiction

The Public Service Appeal Board (Board) has determined it is unable to hear an appeal about the claimed dismissal of a health service casual employee, because it found that the employee was not dismissed.

The Board found  that the appellant was not employed on a regular and systematic basis and was a casual employee. Further, the Board found that although the appellant was no longer working at the original location of her employment, she was still employed by the health service, according to the same casual contract of employment and against the same position number, but at a different location.

The Board noted that although casual employees can be dismissed, in this matter, it was not satisfied the appellant was sent away or removed from her employment or position. The Board dismissed the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
