Flexible Work for Work-Life Balance

Overview

The Department recognises the importance of flexible work arrangements and family friendly work practices in maintaining a diverse, adaptive and high performing workforce.

An employee may request a flexible work arrangement to assist them to balance their work and life/family commitments.  Requests will be assessed by the principal/manager on a case-by-case basis taking into account legislative requirements and the needs of both the employee and the workplace.

The decision to implement a flexible work arrangement should be agreed between the principal/manager and the employee with the chosen arrangement being mutually acceptable.  The success of flexible work arrangements requires 'give and take' and a shared responsibility between the employee and principal/manager to make the arrangements work.

For comprehensive policy information and guidelines to assist with making and evaluating requests for flexible work arrangements see below under ‘Other Resources’.
