PSA Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC)
The PSA has received a copy of a determination made by the LECC on 5 August 2016. It purports to set down the conditions of employment for staff from 1 January 2017. The determination seeks to undermine conditions of employment for staff at the Ombudsman’s office (Police and Compliance Branch) and the Police Integrity Commission (PIC). Some examples of this are:
- allowing management to deny pay rises to staff if they deem that you have not earned it
- allowing for unpaid overtime for staff at Grade 11/12 and for some classifications
- a minimal flexible working hours arrangement, which is intended to have staff forfeit hours (four-week settlement period with no banking).
The PSA has lodged an award designed to protect conditions of employment for members transferring to the LECC. We are confident the NSW Industrial Relations Commission has the power to do this, despite the LECC’s concerted efforts to strip you of your rights.
