DHHS proposal for Justice teams.

The DHHS recently provided detail of its proposal allocation for Justice Teams, see table below.

Members should note Ban 10 of our protected action applies: ‘refuse to participate in employer initiate workplace change including changes to work locations (including location on a single site) and service changes including implementation of roster reviews and IT systems.’

The DHHS has advised that given the North and West divisions have ‘existing stand alone justice teams’ they have allocated additional EFT ‘with the expectation that as staff leave the existing metro based teams, their positions will not be filled, until the final EFT allocation (as outlined in the table below) is met’.

Justice teams will be 'stand alone' and will ‘report to the COSI Director, but be physically located in locally based office locations (similar to Specialist Services teams).’

A closed merit selection process will be applied to all new positions, which is only open to current disability Case Managers. Existing stand-alone disability justice staff DO NOT have to apply for their positions.

HACSU is keen to hear from affected members with your feedback so please contact Lisa White, Industrial Officer.

Professional development and support - DHHS training options.

Clause 21.12.2(a) of the DHHS HACSU Disability Service Certified Agreement 2012 – 16 states that one purpose of Professional Development and Support [PDS] is to:

‘Assist the employee [to] identify individual skills and training needs that enhances competency and career development.’

And clause 21.12.1(c) states PDS is to:

Assist the employee [to] further develop their knowledge and skills through reflection on practice and identification and planning for meeting the Employee’s learning needs.’

HACSU understands DDSOs may not have access to the suite of training the DHHS offers, which they may be able to undertake.

Members should note there is no automatic entitlement to the training listed below, rather, it is to assist in their career development and to properly identify their training needs.

We remind members to identify their training needs in their PDS sessions.
