Conditions of employment

Employment terms and conditions 

Terms and conditions of employment at the University are currently governed by the provisions of the University of Southern Queensland Enterprise Agreement 2014-2017 inclusive of competitive salary rates for both academic and professional employees.  The University's Staff Consultative Committee is the forum for discussion and consultation in relation to the implementation of the Enterprise Agreement and other employment related matters.  

Working environment

The University offers a variety of employment categories and flexible working arrangements, including a rostered day off scheme for employees where available, and a pre-retirement program for employees considering a transition to retirement.  USQ ensures that position classification levels are appropriate through formal job evaluation processes and methods.  

Concerns, complaints and disclosures 

Employees are provided with a number of mechanisms to raise concerns or complaints, or to make disclosures.  All issues will be managed in accordance with the provisions of relevant policies and procedures.
