Remuneration and conditions of service

The Comcare Enterprise Agreement  2016–2019 (Enterprise Agreement) sets out the terms and conditions of employment and salary scales for Australian Public Service (APS) employees working at Comcare. It applies to casual, non-ongoing and ongoing employees at all levels from APS1 to Executive Level 2. The Enterprise Agreement provides remuneration increases of six per cent over three years.

The Enterprise Agreement does not apply to Comcare employees in Senior Executive Service (SES) roles or to contractors hired to work in Comcare.

The CEO determines the terms and conditions of employment for SES employees in Comcare. Agreements are based on individual capability and job requirements. These determinations are made under section 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999 (Public Service Act).

Comcare has a range of policies, procedures, and guidelines to support the operation of the Enterprise Agreement—these are referenced throughout the Enterprise Agreement.
