Redeployment and redundancy

Enterprise agreements

The NTPS has very clear provisions detailed within Enterprise Agreements relating to the management of potentially surplus employees and the redeployment and redundancy entitlements.

The NTPS redeployment and redundancy provisions are provided in Schedule 10 of the Northern Territory Public Sector 2013 – 2017 Enterprise Agreement. These provisions are set out in all Enterprise Agreements for public sector employees.

Procedural requirements of the redeployment and redundancy process are set out in sections 41 to 43 of the Public Sector Employment and Management Act and Employment Instruction Number 14.

OCPE Redeployment information site

A Redeployment Information Site has been established, and will be managed by the OCPE Redeployment Team. The database will enable:

  • employees who have been notified by the CEO of their "redeployee" status to register their details on the database so that they can view NTPS vacancies before media advertising occurs
  • agencies to upload vacancies before media advertising for viewing by redeployees and agency Placement Officers
  • Placement Officers to view suitable vacancies to refer redeployees to
  • OCPE to maintain statistical information, maximise redeployment opportunities, and to report to government.

To register on the OCPE redeployment information site please contact your agency placement officer.
