Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2016 Pdf
Such a reassignment would be done with the agreement of the employer and the worker, rather than undertaking an unsatisfactory work process, in accordance with Clause 24. As of today, the new Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (VPS Agreement) is in place with a nominal expiry date of March 20, 2024. It will cover most non-executive VPS employees and replace the existing terms of employment contained in the well-managed Victorian Public Service 2016 Enterprise Agreement ( 2016 agreement). As was widely reported at the time of the vote on the VPS contract, workers will receive a pay increase of just over 8% over the four-year term of the contract, as well as related increases in benefits, with the first increases to be paid from 20 March 2020. Some clients may have a problem with the existing clause 21.12 (b) of the 2016 disciplinary results agreement, which states that «… possible disciplinary results are: … then lists a serious sanction of sanctions available separately by the word «or.» Common policies facilitate the uniform interpretation of important provisions of the 2016 Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement. They apply to VPS employers and employees in all departments and agencies covered by the VPS agreement. Our clients have previously faced unfortunate uncertainty as to whether it was within the scope of the clause`s authority to arrange a result with multiple sanctions or whether the sanctions apply in a disjunkt manner, meaning that only one can be applied. In some cases, an employer may consider that more than one sanction should be applied in order to adequately remedy proven wrongdoing, without having to resort to termination of employment. For obvious reasons, it is preferable, in such cases, to make it clear that this approach is compatible with the enterprise agreement. The parties to the agreement committed to implementing changes in the operation and provision of services by the Victorian government by adopting the principles of «labour mobility.» The principles recognize that the services required by the community of a modern public service are not static; they change all the time.
