Parliamentary Service Act 1999

 

 

Determination under subsection 24(3)

 

 

We, Neil Andrew, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Paul Calvert, President of the Senate, being of the opinion that it is desirable to do so because of exceptional circumstances, determine under subsection 24(3) of the Parliamentary Service Act 1999 as follows.

 

1.         Upon the creation of the Department of Parliamentary Services the remuneration and other terms and conditions of employment of an employee of the Department of Parliamentary Services who on 31 January 2004 was covered by:

 

(a)        the Department of the Parliamentary Library Certified Agreement 2002-2005;

 

(b)        the Department of the Parliamentary Reporting Staff Certified Agreement           2003-2005;

 

(c)        the Joint House Department Certified Agreement 2002-2005; or

 

(d)        the Joint House Department (Parliamentary Security Service) Certified   Agreement 2003-2005;

 

(other than an employee who was covered by an Australian workplace agreement made under the Workplace Relations Act 1996) are to be the same as if that employee continued to be covered on an ongoing basis by the relevant certified agreement.

 

2.         The remuneration and other terms and conditions of employment of an employee who is engaged after 31 January 2004 to work in the Department of Parliamentary Services to perform duties formerly exclusively or primarily performed in:

 

(a)        the Joint House Department;

 

(b)        the Department of the Parliamentary Library; or

 

(c)        the Department of the Parliamentary Reporting Staff,

 

are to be the same as if that employee was covered on an ongoing basis by the certified agreement that would have applied to an employee of that classification performing those duties in the relevant department on 31 January 2004.


3.         Where the remuneration and other terms and conditions of employment in a certified agreement referred to in clause 1 or 2 of this determination are applied to an employee in the Department of Parliamentary Services by that clause, no remuneration or other terms and conditions of employment provided for in any other certified agreement apply to that employee.

 

4.         This determination will continue to apply in relation to an employee while the employee is employed in the Department of Parliamentary Services until:

 

(a)        a certified agreement; or

 

(b)        an Australian workplace agreement;

 

that applies to the employee and that is made after 31 January 2004 takes effect.

 

 

Dated this twenty-ninth day of January 2004
