Acting up allowances and honoraria for all groups of staff
Where a member of staff undertakes the full duties of a higher graded post (other than to cover annual leave or short term sickness absence) for more than six consecutive weeks, they will be considered for an 'acting up allowance' to cover the period concerned. An 'acting up allowance' will usually be paid at the lowest spinal point of the higher grade. A request for an acting up allowance stating the circumstances and the period for which it is requested, should be made in writing by the Head of Department/Division to the HR Division.
