The Services Union in partnership with National Disability Services (NDS), Australian Council of Social Services (ACOSS), Jobs Australia have been providing education and information workshops on the National Pay Equity Outcome in metropolitian areas. The Services Union is now providing this important information via web and video for regional workers and for those who missed the workshops in city areas due to work commitments. This video will update participants on ongoing changes to the industrial landscape within the disability and community sectors, including:

  • clarification of employer obligations under the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services (SCHADS) Modern Award, including penalty and loading phasing requirements;
  • Equal Remuneration Order (ERO) payments for 2013, and how to use tools such as pay tables and the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) ERO calculator;
  • the impact of the Modern Award Review including changes made in November 2012 affecting some provisions such as rosters, sleepovers and breaks between shifts;
  • addressing employers’ and employees’ questions, concerns and challenges in meeting IR obligations and how funding arrangements affect them;
  • the opportunity to gain practical advice and guidance on how to manage challenges and concerns that have arisen following the implementation of the Social and Community Services (SACS) Modern Award and the first instalment of ERO supplementation funding; and
  • QLD State specific issues.
