Yes, PARIM members are members of Doctors Manitoba and are therefore eligible for the Doctors Manitoba Maternity / Parental Leave program. Generally, Residents are eligible for up to 17 consecutive weeks of benefits as long as he/she has earned qualifying income for at least 17 weeks in the prior 12 months. If the Resident has worked less than 17 weeks, the maximum benefit would equal the number of weeks actually worked.
If you have questions about the Doctors Manitoba Maternity / Parental Leave benefits, please contact Barry Hallman at Doctors Manitoba at (204) 985-5865.
You are entitled to 4 weeks off per academic year. Usually this is taken in a 4-week block or in two 2-week blocks, at your discretion. Your vacation schedule must be approved.
You also get statutory holidays off, including: Canada Day, August Civic Holiday, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day, Remembrance Day, Christmas Day*, Boxing Day*, New Year’s Day*, Louis Riel Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday and Victoria Day.
If you are scheduled to work on a stat, you must be scheduled and paid for at least 8 hours but can be sent home before that. You are entitled to a day off in lieu – to be used in the same rotation; however, if that is not possible then you will be paid an extra day’s pay.
If a stat holiday falls within vacation time, it does not count against your vacation.
Each Resident is entitled to five (5) consecutive days off (without loss of pay). That 5-day period must include either Christmas Day/Boxing Day or New Year’s Day. Most rotations will try to accommodate requests for which 5-day period you would like to take, but it is not a guarantee. Please note:
- You cannot be scheduled to work later than 1700 hours on the day prior to of the first the 5-days off.
- Residents must advise the appropriate WRHA official by November 15.
- These holidays cannot be claimed by Residents as banked time.
New: You may request the time off at a time other than Christmas/Boxing Day or New Year’s Day. If approved by the WRHA, it must be taken at a time mutually agreeable, but no later than the end of the post-graduate training year.
Occasionally, new positions are created and this may be the reason that you have yet to be paid for your work. This is usually an easy problem to solve by making an amendment to Appendix E, with the agreement of the WRHA.
If you wish to have a summary of your paid On-Call shifts, please contact PARIM for help.
A Resident who is scheduled for Home Call on a weekend or a designated recognized holiday but is required to work in the hospital during the call for more than twelve (12) hours shall be remunerated at 75% of the rate applicable to the In-Hospital Call.
In order to be paid the appropriate amount, you must complete and submit a Call Conversion Form” ONLINE for EACH call shift that qualifies. This is available on the PARIM website at www.parim.org.
Home-Call should be no more than 1 day On-Call per 3 days, averaged over the 28-day rotation (i.e. up to 10 shifts).
These are the maximums that can be assigned under the Collective Agreement.
Unless there are critical professional and/or patient care reasons, you should never work more than 26 consecutive hours (including transfer of care). If you are required to do so, the WRHA may be in violation of the Collective Agreement. Please contact PARIM confidentially if you feel that your service is not complying with the contract.
If that someone is not associated with the hospital, consider contacting hospital security.
If the call rooms are in need of repair, please contact PARIM.
PARIM negotiated for the WRHA to pay full membership fees up front. You do NOT need to send any money to CMPA.
Each resident will pay a portion ($625). This portion is deducted from your pay in two installments throughout the year.
