This also means the separate scheme that provides for off duty injury coverage for death, total and permanent disability, and partial and permanent disability.

 

"off duty injury" means any personal injury or disease which is not an on duty injury.

 

"officer" means an employee in a classification for which it is an essential requirement that they possess, or undertake the Diploma in Paramedical Science (or an equivalent, or its predecessor qualification) this is confined to classifications under Clause 5 Classifications of the Operational Ambulance Officers (State) Award and Clause 4 Definitions of the Ambulance Service of New South Wales Superintendent/Operational Managers (State) Award. For the purpose of this award, Ambulance Service positions designated as Patient Transport Officer Manager and Hospital Liaison Officer are included in the definition of officer at the operative date of this Award.

 

"on duty injury" means an injury arising out of or in the course of employment (including a disease which is contracted by an officer in the course of their employment) in such circumstances as would, if the officer were a worker within the meaning of the Workers Compensation Act 1987, entitle the officer to compensation under the terms and provisions of the Act.

 

"partial and permanent disability" means the officer’s cessation of employment was substantially due, to the permanent physical or mental disability of the officer (not caused by any act or default of the officer intended to produce an injury leading to that disability) and the officer is, when the officer ceases to be employed by the Service, permanently unable, by reason of that disability, to perform the duties of the position for which the officer was substantively employed

The award components that make up "salary" are contained in the schedule at Annexure C. In the case of officers employed on a full time basis, lump sum benefits payable under this Award utilising a salary component shall utilise the salary as defined above. In the case of officers who have worked a period of their service on a permanent part-time basis, the benefits will be calculated by applying the relevant part time ratio to the prescribed benefit.

5. Contributions By Officers

 

5.1 Officers who are eligible for coverage under this Award, subject to subclauses 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5 and clause 14, shall contribute 1.8 percent of their salary to the Service.

 

5.2 Officers who are contributors to SASS but who do not contribute to SASS for Additional Benefit Cover shall contribute 1.8 percent of their salary to the Service.

The only benefits prescribed by this award to which the officer shall be entitled are the benefits applicable in relation to partial and permanent disability.

 

5.5 The contributions prescribed by this Award in relation to officers who are contributors to SASS are additional to the contributions that they are required to make under the State Authorities Superannuation Act 1987.

 

5.6 Notwithstanding the provisions of the Operational Ambulance Officers (State) Award or the Ambulance Service of New South Wales Superintendent/Operational Managers (State) Award, an officer who is required or elects to make contributions pursuant to this clause will do so by sacrificing an amount of unearned salary equivalent to the officer’s contribution, unless they elect to contribute in a different manner. Such salary sacrifice shall not be taken into account for the purpose of calculating the remuneration that the officer would have received in the event that no salary sacrifice had been applicable. This contribution is not an eligible benefit for salary packaging purposes.

 

5.7 The provisions of this subclause are subject to the State Authorities Superannuation Act 1987 or Regulations being amended so as to permit officers who are contributors to SASS and who contribute for Additional Benefit Cover to elect, on a "once only" basis, whether they wish to retain or relinquish that additional benefit cover. An officer who is a contributor to SASS and who contributes for Additional Benefit Cover shall make an election as provided for by this clause in the time frame specified by the Amendments to the Act or Regulations.

 

5.8 In the event that an officer dies or employment ceases due to illness or injury prior to having had an opportunity to make an election pursuant to this subclause he/she shall be entitled to be paid the benefits pursuant to this award less any benefit payable under the Additional Benefit Cover from SASS.

 

5.9 An officer on any form of leave without pay shall continue to be covered by this Award and shall be required to make the contributions that he/she would otherwise have made had he/she not been on leave without pay.

 

5.10 Contributions of permanent part time officers will be based on their part time salary as defined by this Award.

 

6. Other Benefits Applicable to Officers

 

The benefits conferred upon officers by this Award shall be in addition to any superannuation benefits that may be payable to officers and any payments under the Workers Compensation Act 1987 and the Workplace Injury Management and Workers Compensation Act 1998 as varied from time to time.

 

7. Officers - Lump Sum Payments for "on Duty" Death and Total and Permanent Disability

 

7.1 Officers who contribute for death and total and permanent disability coverage under clause 4 shall be entitled to a lump sum payment in accordance with Schedule A to this Award in the event that an on duty injury results in an officer’s death or an officer suffering total and permanent disability. In the case of officers who have worked a period of their service on a permanent part-time basis, the benefits will be calculated by applying the relevant part time ratio to the prescribed benefit. This ratio shall be calculated by dividing the officer's actual service by the full time equivalent service. The period of service taken into account is from 10 November 2006 or the date employment commenced, whichever is the later.

 

7.2 Entitlements under subclause 7.1 in the event of an officer’s death will be paid in accordance with the scheme’s trust deed.

8.1 Officers who contribute for death and total and permanent disability coverage under clause 4 shall be entitled to a lump sum payment in accordance with the scale set out in subclause 8.3 in the event that an off duty injury results in their death or total and permanent disability. Any such lump sum payment will be at the rate effective at the date of disablement.

 

8.2 For the purposes of this clause, an officer’s age shall be his/her age at the time of his/her death or at the date of disablement or at such earlier date as may be determined by the parties in accordance with subclause 12.1.

8.4 The Lump Sum amounts prescribed by subclause 8.3 shall be increased in accordance with general increases in salaries prescribed by the Operational Ambulance Officers (State) Award or the Ambulance Service of New South Wales Superintendent/Operational Managers (State) Award.

 

9. Rehabilitation, Retraining and Lump Sum Payments for Officers Who Suffer Partial and Permanent Disability

 

9.1 The lump sum payments prescribed by this clause are payable to officers. In order to be entitled to a benefit pursuant to this clause, an officer must engage in the provisions outlined within this clause.

 

9.2 There is a mutual obligation on both the Service and the injured officer to identify suitable employment. However, it is the injured officer’s responsibility to accept a reasonable offer of a suitable employment made by the Service, which may include transfer to another location. A failure to accept one of three offers of suitable employment will jeopardise any benefits or entitlements payable under this Award and may result in termination of employment.

 

9.3 An officer who suffers an on duty injury shall receive rehabilitation/retraining consistent with the Service’s Policy and Procedures for the Management of Return to Work, leading to a return to pre-injury employment wherever possible.

 

9.3.1 Where a return to pre-injury employment is not possible, as determined by a medical assessor contracted by the Service, the officer will be declared as suffering a partial and permanent disability and opportunities for permanent placement in suitable employment will be sought.

 

9.3.2 If permanent placement in suitable employment within the Service is not possible the employment of the officer may be terminated. In such circumstances the officer, subject to eligibility being established, shall be paid a lump sum payment in accordance with Annexure B to this Award.

 

9.4 An officer who suffers an off duty injury shall receive rehabilitation/retraining consistent with the Service’s Policy and Procedures for the Management of Return to Work for non work related injuries/illness, leading to a return to pre-injury employment wherever possible. No medical or rehabilitation costs will be met by the Service for off duty injuries.

 

9.4.1 Where a return to pre-injury employment is not possible as determined by the medical assessor, the officer will be declared as suffering a partial and permanent disability and opportunities for permanent placement in suitable employment will be sought wherever reasonably practical. Suitable employment can include redeployment to an administrative position.

 

9.4.2 If permanent placement in suitable employment within the Service is not possible the employment of the officer may be terminated and, in such circumstances, the officer shall be paid a lump sum payment equivalent to the unexpired portion of the two year full salary or full salary to age 60 (whichever is the lesser). In the case of permanent part time officers, the entitlements under this subclause are calculated on a pro rata basis. The two year period commences when medical evidence indicates that an officer is not able to return to their pre-injury employment.

 

9.5 The objective of the rehabilitation/retraining program creates mutual obligations, which is for every officer who suffers partial and permanent disability to be placed in suitable employment with the Service, wherever reasonably practical.

 

9.6 An adequate opportunity will be given to the officer concerned and the Union (unless the officer expressly declines to agree to the Union being informed) to consider the Service’s opinion that no suitable employment is available and to put that opinion into dispute in accordance with the dispute resolution clause of this Award prior to cessation of employment. Such opportunity will also be given in situations where it is disputed that any alternate employment is genuinely suitable. Suitable employment does not include employment that is merely token in nature and does not involve useful work in relation to the activities of the Service, or is demeaning in nature having regard to the officer’s incapacity and pre-injury employment, age, education, skills and work experience. The officer’s place of residence will also be considered when determining suitable employment.

 

10. Insurance and Assessment of Entitlement to Benefits

 

10.1 The Union acknowledges that the Service will establish, with First State Super, a superannuation scheme to pay the lump sum benefits prescribed by clause 7 of this Award, and that the Service will establish a separate scheme to pay the benefits prescribed by clause 8 of this Award. The Governments contribution to the costs of the superannuation scheme and the separate scheme (under clause 8) is limited to 3.6% of salaries as prescribed in Clause 14 Award Review.

 

10.2 The Service shall deduct the contributions that officers are required to make pursuant to this clause from their salaries.

 

10.3 The Service shall contribute to a superannuation scheme such sum as required to meet the cost of the insurance premiums to fund death and total and permanent disability benefits.

 

10.4 The Service shall administer a scheme for the payment of benefits payable under this Award for partial and permanent disability.

 

10.5 The Service will meet the entitlement pursuant to clause 7 and clause 8 for death and total and permanent disability benefits in the following circumstances:

 

10.5.1 Injuries or death in the period from the operative date of this award to the operative date of a superannuation scheme;

 

10.5.2 Members covered by the transition arrangements in Clause 4;

 

10.5.3 On duty overseas deployments to countries not covered by the insurer, pursuant to clause 7 only.

 

10.6 Members can only receive one benefit either a "partial and permanent disability benefit" or "total and permanent disability benefit". When an employee receives payment for partial and permanent disability, they will be required to sign a deed of release. This deed ensures that any benefits obtained under partial and permanent disability will be repaid should the employee be successful in claiming total and permanent disability.

 

10.7 Entitlement to benefits to be provided by the Service pursuant to this Award shall be assessed by the assessment provider, engaged by the Service. Any dispute can be initially assessed in accordance with clause 12 of this award.

 

10.8 Entitlement to receive a lump sum benefit from the First State Super insurance superannuation scheme shall be assessed in accordance with the terms of the First State Super superannuation scheme Trust Deed and Policy Document. Any dispute will be assessed in accordance with the First State Super superannuation scheme’s Disputes and Complaints procedure. This includes if unresolved by internal processes, any dispute as to entitlement to receive a lump sum payment from the First State Super insurance superannuation scheme the matter may be referred the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal. Disputes may also be addressed through the Grievance Mechanism in clause 12.

 

10.9 Lump sum benefits payable under this Award shall be calculated utilising the salary as defined in this Award. In the case of officers who have worked a period of their service on a permanent part-time basis, the benefits will be calculated by applying the relevant part time ratio to the prescribed benefit. This ratio shall be calculated by dividing the officer's actual service by the full time equivalent service. The period of service taken into account is from 10 November 2006 or the date employment commenced, whichever is the later.

 

10.10 An officer otherwise entitled to benefits provided by this Award shall not be entitled to such benefits in relation to an injury (or consequent disability) directly caused by the taking of disciplinary action that may lead to removal from the Service. However, if;

 

10.10.1 the initiation of or conduct of such disciplinary action by the Service was not reasonable; or

 

10.10.2 the officer is not ultimately removed from the Service as a consequence of the disciplinary action,

 

then the officer shall continue to be eligible to claim benefits for such injury.

 

PART C

 

HEALTH AND WELLNESS PROGRAM

 

11. Health and Wellness Program

 

11.1 A Health and Wellness Program will be developed and implemented.

 

Part D

 

GRIEVANCE MECHANISM, ANTI-DISCRIMINATION, LEAVE RESERVED AND AREA, INCIDENCE, DURATION AND PARTIES BOUND

 

12. Grievance Mechanism

 

12.1 A committee will be formed comprised of representatives of the Union and the Service to consider grievances that arise from the application of this award. The Union, the Service or individual employees may refer such matters to the committee.

 

12.2 With the exception of the procedures outlined in clause 10.8 of this Award, if an issue gives rise to a dispute it shall be dealt with in accordance with the issue resolution procedures in Operational Ambulance Officers (State) Award and the Ambulance Service of New South Wales Superintendent/Operational Managers (State) Award 12.3. Any disputes arising under this award may be referred to the Industrial Relations Commission of New South Wales.

 

13. Anti-Discrimination

 

13.1 It is the intention of the parties bound by this Award to seek to achieve the object in section 3(f) of the Industrial Relations Act 1996 to prevent and eliminate discrimination in the workplace. This includes discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, marital status, disability, homosexuality, transgender identity, age and responsibilities as a carer.

 

13.2 It follows that in fulfilling their obligations under clause 12 of this Award the parties have obligations to take all reasonable steps to ensure that the operation of the provisions of this Award are not directly or indirectly discriminatory in their effect. It will be consistent with the fulfilment of these obligations for the parties to make an application to vary any provision of this Award, which by its terms or operation, has direct or indirect discriminatory effect.

 

13.3 Under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977, it is unlawful to victimise an employee because the employee has made or may make or has been involved in a complaint of unlawful discrimination or harassment.

 

13.4 Nothing in this clause is taken to affect any conduct or act which is specifically exempted from anti-discrimination legislation; offering or providing junior rates of pay to persons under 21 years of age; any act or practice of a body established to propagate religion which is exempted under section 56(d) of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977; and/or a party to this Award from pursuing matters of unlawful discrimination in any State or Federal jurisdiction.

 

13.5 This clause does not create legal rights or obligations in addition to those imposed upon the parties by legislation referred to in this clause.

 

14. Award Review

 

14.1 There will be regular actuarial and financial reviews conducted on this death and disability scheme. The first of these reviews will coincide with the next review of the Police death and disability scheme as provided for in the Crown Employees (Police Officers Death and Disability) Award. Subsequent reviews will be no longer than each 3 years thereafter.

 

14.2 The benefits, rehabilitation and administrative costs for on duty injury provided under this Award are based on actuarial and financial estimates with the long term cost to Government being 3.6% of salaries as defined by this Award. If the results of the triennial actuarial and financial review referred to above or if in any 12 month period:

 

14.2.1 the insurance premium quoted for the next 12 months, and/or

 

14.2.2 the claims experience of the preceding 12 months

 

are such that, in the opinion of the actuary and the Service, the long term cost to the Government is likely to exceed 3.6% of salaries, there will be an immediate review of the benefits and/or the officer contributions of the scheme. Appropriate steps will then be taken by the parties to implement a revised scheme that maintains a maximum cost to Government of 3.6% of salaries.

 

15. Leave Reserved and No Extra Claims

 

15.1 Leave is reserved to the parties generally to apply as they may be advised in respect of any adjustment under Commonwealth legislation governing superannuation which alters preservation rights at age 60 or in the event that any legislative change necessary for the implementation of this Award does not occur.

 

15.2 Leave is reserved to the parties to apply as they may with respect to coverage where officers contribute to NSW Government subsidised superannuation schemes which includes commensurate levels of benefits for death and permanent disability.

 

15.3 Leave is reserved for the Union to apply as it may in respect of extending the definition of officer in clause 3 Definitions of this Award to Patient Transport Officer under the Operational Ambulance Officers (State) Award.

 

15.4 Leave is reserved for the New South Wales Department of Heath and the Service to apply as they may for arbitration of the Health and Wellness Program under clause 11 Health and Wellness Program of this Award.

 

15.5 The parties agree that there will be no extra claims made during the life of this Award, except as expressly provided for in this Award.

 

16. Area, Incidence, Duration and Parties Bound

 

16.1 This Award shall apply to all officers as defined in clause 3, Definitions, who are employed by the Ambulance Service.

 

16.2 This Award shall be binding upon the Union and the Ambulance Service.
