I need to know this because:
  • Submission addresses variations to the Award confirming the removal of unused wage tools
  • Proposes updates to the definitions of 'Supported Employment Service' and 'employee with disability'
  • Identifies NDS's position on a proposed variation to the superannuation clause

NDS has lodged its latest submission with the Fair Work Commission on the Supported Employment Services Award review.

The submission addresses variations to the Award sought by NDS confirming the removal of unused wage tools and proposing updates to the definitions of 'Supported Employment Service' and 'employee with disability' (supported employee). As Disability Enterprises move into the NDIS current definitions linked to DSS funding will be obsolete.
