Redeployment of Surplus Employees
Section 47 of the State Service Act 2000 (the Act) outlines the process for redeployment, when a State Service employee is identified as surplus to requirements by an agency, as well as the State Service Commissioner’s role in this process. The Premier issued Ministerial Direction No. 25 – State Service Vacancy Control Process (SSVCP) on 5 August 2011, which prescribes the administrative requirements for:
- State Service vacancy control within and across agencies;
- management of surplus employees performing duties that are no longer required; and
- the assessment and transfer of surplus employees into vacant positions.
