20. Retiring Gratuities

Current grandparented entitlements at former district health boards shall continue to apply to those eligible employees covered by this Agreement.  In those district health boards where the gratuity is not already grandparented, it will be grandparented to those employees employed on 23 December 2004.

For the purposes of this clause, employees, who on or after 1 July 2022 change to a position with an employer party based outside of their former district health board area, will carry their grandparented entilement with them and will continue to be regarded as accruing service as if they were still employed in the district in which the entitlement arose.
