The number of grades and the content of the grade descriptions vary depending on the organization of the public sector and its applicable corporate agreement. As widely reported at the time of the vote on the VPS agreement, employees will receive salary increases of just over 8% over the four-year period of the agreement, as well as related increases in compensation, with the first increases payable as of March 20, 2020. Depending on the grade of a position, a salary range is applied. This salary range reflects the level of skills and abilities required for the position. Wages that apply to a particular role are listed in the applicable company agreement. Although the specific benefits vary depending on the public sector organization in which you are employed and the respective company agreements, you can generally expect some benefits. See staff benefits. Clause 15 contains a statement of intent that the VPS Agreement as a whole is to be interpreted in accordance with the mobility principles and an explicit obligation for the parties to work towards the operationalisation of the mobility principles during the term of the agreement. Our clients have previously considered the unfortunate uncertainty as to whether it is the power to achieve a result of multiple sanctions by the clause or whether the sanctions apply disjunctively, meaning that only one can be applied.

In some cases, an employer may consider it appropriate to apply more than one sanction to appropriately address proven misconduct without having to resort to termination of the employment relationship. For obvious reasons, it is preferable in such cases that it be clear that this approach is compatible with the undertaking agreement. As there are over 1800 employers in the Victorian public sector, there is not a single document that contains information on each employment salary, salary scale or job performance. These therefore vary according to the organisation of the public sector and the company agreement that covers its employees. Such a transfer would be by agreement between the employer and the employee, rather than performing an unsatisfactory work performance process in accordance with section 24. For example, the 2020 Victoria Public Service Undertaking Agreement (mentioned above) includes a Class 1 to 7 structure as well as detailed descriptors of each. You can read them in Appendix C of the Agreement. However, there are various agreements that apply to a large part of the Victorian public sector. One of them is the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020. It contains information on grades, steps and other general conditions of employment for the services and agencies concerned. Clause 44.4 of the VPS Agreement has been inserted to clarify that employees who are free to work and receive work allowances are able to take and collect annual and personal leave.

This amendment should overcome all the uncertainties that existed prior to the application of section 130 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) in Victoria and the decision of the Federal Court of the Federal Court of Anglican Care v NSW Nurses and Midwives` Association [2015] FCAFC 81. . .
