Ill Health Retirement

If an employee has a medical condition that prevents them from performing the inherent requirements of their substantive position, either permanently or for the foreseeable future, the Department may choose to ill health retire the employee.

Prior to considering the ill health retirement of an employee, the Department first needs to ensure that it has exhausted the options of workplace rehabilitation, reasonable adjustment and medical deployment.

All decisions to ill health retire an employee are made under of the Public Service Act 2008 Adobe PDF document. Part 7 of the Public Service Act 2008 provides direction in relation to clarifying employee issues that appear to relate to mental or physical incapacity.

For details of the process that the department follows when considering whether an employee should be ill health retired from their position within the department, visit the Ill Health Retirement External Link procedure.

Further information can be found at the Public Service Commission website in relation to Part 7 of the Public Service Act 2008.
