Review of Standard Contract of Employment for General Managers

As a result of its investigation of the former Canterbury City Council, the Independent Commission Against Corruption recommended that the Department of Planning and Environment conduct a review into the “no fault” termination provision in the standard contract of employment for general managers.

In response to ICAC’s recommendation, the Office of Local Government has undertaken a review of the standard contract of employment for general managers in consultation with the parties to the Local Government (State) Award.

The Office of Local Government is consulting with councils on the proposed amendments to the standard contract arising from that review before they are approved by the “departmental chief executive” under section 338 of the Local Government Act 1993.
