This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 6 October 2006, applies sections 30E and 30F of the State Sector Act 1988 to employees of the Boards of Trustees of Waihopai School and Ruru Special School who will be affected by the transfer from those boards to the Ministry of Education of the function of delivering specialist and therapy services for primary schools, composite and secondary schools, and education centres in the Ministry's Southland special education district.
Section 30E restricts compensation for technical redundancy. Its application has the effect that an employee who is offered equivalent employment with the Ministry of Education (or accepts other employment with the Ministry) is not entitled to compensation for the technical redundancy caused by the transfer of the service delivery function to the Ministry.
Section 30F excludes some provisions of the State Sector Act 1988 that usually apply to making appointments to positions in departments of State. Its application has the effect that the Ministry of Education does not have to comply with some standard obligations if it employs people formerly employed to deliver specialist or therapy services at Waihopai School or Ruru Special School (for example, the obligation to notify a vacant position before appointing a person to it).
