Employees on fixed term contracts should not be disadvantaged!
Following discussions with DEECD HR, employees on fixed term contracts should be aware that if the usual practice is, that at the end of a fixed term contract, the staff member would be re-employed the following day to secure their employment for the next school year, then this practice should continue.

Other issues to keep in mind are;


  • At the end of the fixed term contract, annual leave is owing, then the next date of employment will be the day after that leave has been used, i.e. if the staff member s contract expires on 17th December, and there is ten days leave owing, that on the eleventh day, the 28th December, the new contract will commence.
  • DEECD HR is devising a ready reckoner for Business Managers that will make this an easy process.
  • There is no agreement between CPSU and DEECD that the default position for long service leave is that a staff member must apply NOT to have it paid out at the finish of a fixed term of employment if they are to be re-employed, and CPSU believes that the default position must be that staff should apply for long service leave to be paid out.

CPSU - 125 in 2010.

When 1,000 colonial public servants crammed into the Athenaeum Hall in Collins Street on 17 June 1885 to form the Victorian Public Service Association they had no idea that we d be still here and turning 125 this year.
