Workers with Disabilities

Claims from the CPSU’s Disability Advisory Forum.

Claim 105: Special Leave
An employee may be granted leave with or without pay to undertake activities inherently associated with an employee’s disability not already provided for by specific leave entitlements.

Any leave without pay approved under this shall not break the Employee’s continuity of employment but leave without pay will not count as service for leave accrual or other purposes.

Claim 106: All of Agency Audit
Every year the Employer will undertake an accessibility audit across the state service. This audit will ensure facilities are appropriate for employees to be able to perform their duties and that members of the community with diverse abilities are able to access public services.
