26. Functional Flexibility

26.1 The University may utilise the broad range of employee’s skills to maintain and improve the effectiveness of programs and service delivery outcomes.

26.2 Within reason, an employee may be required to perform a broader range of duties, in particular those tasks which are incidental and/or peripheral to the employee's major duties. The performance of a broader range of duties is subject to:

  • The University's commitment to providing a safe and healthy working environment;
  • The employee having been adequately trained to perform the duties;
  • Consultation with the employee and their nominated representative;
  • The duties not having the substantive effect of de-skilling.
