SACS Equal Pay Case - Education & Information
Community Sector & Disability Sector Workers – do you understand equal pay?
The outcome of the Equal Pay Case from Fair Work Australia and implementation of the new SCHCADS (SACS Modern Award) from 1 July 2012 produced a changing industrial relations environment for disability and community services.
The Australian Government provided funding for education and information sessions to help the sector gain a better understanding of how these changes will impact on the industry, some sessions geared towards employers and some towards employees.
The Australian Services Union (ASU) provided education and information sessions for employees across the country and all community sector workers were encouraged to take advantage of them so as to understand the changes and their impact. The Union has also produced other resources for members, some of which are provided below under "Online resources".
