Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020 (PDF, 6.33 MB) Fair Work has approved our Victorian Public Service EA 2020 this afternoon and the agreement will come into effect after 7 days, starting next Friday, October 9, 2020. Gov`t indicate payments before Christmas with agencies that come into contact with the treatment which can last from 6 to 8 weeks. Happy holidays. Congratulations to all of you. Our clients have previously faced unfortunate uncertainty as to whether it was within the scope of the clause`s authority to arrange a result with multiple sanctions or whether the sanctions apply in a disjunkt manner, meaning that only one can be applied. In some cases, an employer may consider that more than one sanction should be applied in order to adequately remedy proven wrongdoing, without having to resort to termination of employment. For obvious reasons, it is preferable, in such cases, to make it clear that this approach is compatible with the enterprise agreement. Article 15 contains a declaration of intent that the VPS agreement must be interpreted as a whole in accordance with the principles of mobility, as well as the express obligation that the parties strive to implement the principles of mobility for the duration of the agreement. Take some time to review the proposed agreement before the vote. As was widely reported at the time of the vote on the VPS contract, workers will receive a pay increase of just over 8% over the four-year term of the contract, as well as related increases in benefits, with the first increases to be paid from 20 March 2020. Such a reassignment would be done with the agreement of the employer and the worker, rather than undertaking an unsatisfactory work process, in accordance with Clause 24.
From July 1, 2020, the overtime limit is increased from the highest pay point to Level 3, to value 1, to the lowest pay point at Level 4. In recognition of the principles of mobility, a new mobility payment (similar to an annual bonus) was introduced in the VPS agreement. It is paid to all workers, whether or not they are actually affected by changes or mobility requirements, and is made annually on 1 July of each year in the form of a lump sum effective 1 July 2020.
