Since there are more than 1,800 employers in the entire Victorian public sector, there is not a single document that contains information on each level of employment, each wage sector or every job benefit. These will vary depending on the organization of the public sector and the enterprise agreement that covers their employees. Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (PDF, 6.33 MB) As of today, the new Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (VPS Agreement) is underway 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). In recognition of the principles of mobility, a new mobility payment (similar to an annual bonus) was introduced in the VPS agreement. It is paid to all workers, whether or not they are actually affected by changes or mobility requirements, and is made annually on 1 July of each year in the form of a lump sum effective 1 July 2020. Although specific services vary depending on the public sector organization you work in and the enterprise agreements, you can generally expect some benefits. See staff benefits. The number of grades and the content of the grade scripters vary depending on the public sector organization and the current enterprise 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. Mobility is an essential feature of the new VPS agreement.
Mobility`s stated objective is to facilitate on-the-go employment, which can be deployed at various sites and roles in the VPS to meet changing utility requirements. Flexible work will be clarified and protected by the merger of all existing provisions into a specific part of the new agreement.
