Medical deployment

Medical deployment and redeployment is a process that provides support for tenured public service employees who are permanently unable to perform their usual duties due to a medical condition.

Section 178 of the Public Service Act 2008 provides guidance to government department's and employees in relation to the courses of action available following receipt of an independent medical report, obtained pursuant to Part 7 of the Public Service Act 2008.

To be eligible for consideration as a medical deployee/redeployee there are a number of criteria that an employee needs to meet before the department is able to approve registration as a medical deployee.

Each case for medical deployment will be considered on its own merit and capacity to meet the suitability criteria. For further information on this process please contact the HR Team in your Regional, TAFE or Central Office.
