The Fair Jobs Code for the community services sector (the CS Code) was launched on 1 September, alongside a 5.45% indexation increase for the next financial year and an ongoing indexation formula to apply from now on.
The CS Code is a series of standards relating to:
- compliance with workplace laws/obligations
- promoting secure employment and job security
- fostering cooperation between employers, employees and unions
- promoting equity and diversity in the workplace.
The CS Code will apply to any community service organisation receiving $2 million or more per year in aggregate funding from any government department (as a condition of that funding). The code comes into effect from 1 August 2024. DFFH will be undertaking consultation on implementation and other issues between now and then.
