This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 1 July 2009, applies some of the employee provisions of the State Sector Act 1988 to employees affected by the transfer of certain functions of the State Services Commission to the Department of Internal Affairs. The functions transferred are those currently performed by that part of the State Services Commission Information Communications Technology Branch known as Government Technology Services.
The provisions applied are—
section 30E, which relates to restriction of compensation for technical redundancy. As a result, a State Services Commission employee who is offered equivalent employment with the Department of Internal Affairs, or who accepts other employment with the Department of Internal Affairs, is not entitled to compensation for technical redundancy:
section 30F, which disapplies some of the State Sector Act 1988 provisions that usually apply to appointments. As a result, the Department of Internal Affairs is not obliged to comply with some standard obligations (for example, the obligation to notify a vacancy before appointing a State Services Commission employee).
Date of notification in Gazette: 9 April 2009.
This order is administered by the State Services Commission.
