Such a transfer would be by mutual agreement between the employer and the worker, instead of proceeding with an unsatisfactory work delivery process, in accordance with clause 24. The parties to the agreement have committed to implementing changes in the way the Victorian government works and provides services by agreeing on the principles of “labour mobility”. The principles recognise that the services required by the Community of a modern public service are not static; They change all the time. The number of grades and the content of the notes vary depending on the public sector organization and their applicable company agreement. Mobility is an essential feature of the new VPS agreement. Mobility`s stated goal is to facilitate the continued employment of employees who can be employed in different locations and roles within the VPS in order to meet changing utility requirements. Although the specific benefits vary depending on the organization of the public sector in which you work and the respective company agreements, you can generally expect certain benefits. See staff benefits. Since there are more than 1800 employers in the Victorian public sector, there is no document containing information on every remuneration, salary bracket or employment benefit. These therefore vary according to the organisation of the public sector and the company agreement that covers their employees. As was widely reported at the time of the vote on the VPS agreement, employees receive salary increases of just over 8% during the term of the agreement during the four years of the agreement, as well as increases in the resulting allowances, with the first increases to be paid from 20 March 2020. 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. The Victorian public sector offers generous benefits and opportunities to advance your career and income.

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 adequately address proven misconduct without having to resort to termination of the employment relationship. . . .
