3.4 Supported Wage System

3.4 Supported Wage System

3.4.1 Nothing in this Agreement will prevent the full operation of the Supported Wage System as documented in the Australian Government's Supported Wage System: Guidelines and Assessment Process. The System is designed to promote employment for people who, because of a disability, are unable to work at full award wages.

3.4.2 The capacity of the Staff Member will be assessed in accordance with the Supported Wage System. The Staff Member will be paid the greater of the amount set by the Supported Wage System from time to time or the applicable percentage (10-90 per cent) of the minimum rate of the relevant classification level for the position in which they are employed. Where the assessed capacity is 10 per cent, the Staff Member will receive a high degree of assistance and support.
