Retired Teacher Receives Outstanding Higher Duty Allowances

A retired high school teacher in East Sepik Province received payments of his Higher Duty Allowance (HDA) for the years that he was performing higher duties without being paid on pay 13 of 2023.

The teacher had been submitting his claim and following up with the concerned Provincial Division of Education to have his outstanding HDA paid but his efforts have been futile.

While still a member of the Teaching Service, he lodged his complaint with the Commission in June 2020. After the Commission intervened, the Department of Education paid his outstanding HDA of K4,429.57 on 30 June 2023.
