Legal Secretaries Positions Reduction in Crown Solicitor’s Office | Feedback Please

17 May 2019

The Crown Solicitor’s Office has invited the Public Service Association (PSA) to provide feedback about further proposed changes resulting from expressions of interest in separation packages in the Office. The new proposal is the loss of another ASO2 Legal Secretary position after one position was lost earlier this year.

The Crown Solicitors Office had stated to the PSA that workloads for remaining Legal Secretaries are not expected to be affected. We seek you feedback on this so we can respond to management.

Any proposal for change must consider workloads according to clause 15.2 of the South Australian Modern Public Service Enterprise Agreement: Salaried 2017.

15. WORKLOAD MANAGEMENT

PROTECTION FROM UNREASONABLE WORKLOADS

15.1 The parties acknowledge that the workload for individual employees or a group of
employees in a workplace (work group) must not be excessive, unreasonable or
unsustainable.

15.2 Any proposed review or proposed workplace change must include as part of consultation,
an assessment of the potential impact on workloads for individual employees or a work
group in a workplace and measures proposed to manage such impacts. The intent of
managing impacts must be to minimise the risk of unreasonable workloads.
