Australian Civilian Corps
Department of Commerce has issued Circular No. 13 of 2012 (attached).
This circular clarifies the effect of leave without pay arrangements for employees participating in the Australian Civilian Corps (ACC). This circular is read in conjunction with the Public Sector Commissioner’s Circular No. 3 of 2012 Guidelines for participation with the Australian Civilian Corps (attached).
The ACC, established by the Commonwealth Government through AusAid, deploys stabilisation and recovery specialists to developing countries experience or emerging from natural disaster or conflict.
Participation by WA Health employees in the ACC requires the approval of the employer, who is not obliged to give that approval. If approval is given leave without pay will be taken.
WA Health employees proceeding on leave without pay for approved ACC training or deployment purposes are exempt from the usual requirement of having to exhaust all leave entitlements prior to proceeding on leave without pay.
Schedule A outlines the effect of leave without pay on employment entitlements for WA Health employees who undertake authorised training and/or deployment with the ACC.
