Useful information for State Service Employees

Page Last Updated: 10 January 2020 JM

State Service Review of Actions

The State Service Act 2000 provides for employee review matters under Section 50 - Review of Actions, whereby an employee is entitled to make application regarding employee selections (relating to specific selections and criteria) and of any other State Service action that relates to his or her employment in the State Service.

Following amendments to the State Service Act 2000 and the Industrial Relations Act 1984, the Tasmanian Industrial Commission (TIC) has assumed responsibility for the review of applications by State Service employees in relation to selection and other actions relating to their employment from 4 February 2013. Forms and Guidelines are available from the TIC website.

Employees must make an application for a review to the Tasmanian Industrial Commission.

Employees should carefully read the guidelines and procedures before lodging and application.

Tasmanian State Service Award

The Tasmanian State Service Award (TSSA) sets out salaries and conditions of employment for everyone employed under the State Service Act 2000 for whom a specific classification is contained in the award, except for employees for whom a classification is contained in another award of the Tasmanian Industrial Commission.

To access the award

Healthy @ Work

Healthy@Work was a four year project (2008-2012) to support the implementation of workplace health and wellbeing programs in all Government Agencies and Authorities.

The project supported each organisation to develop an effective workplace health and wellbeing program. The project had a strong focus on programs that use preventative strategies to address key health factors – eg smoking, nutrition, physical activity, sedentary behaviour, alcohol consumption and psychosocial health.
