Industrial Relations Guide

The Public Service Industrial Relations Guide (the Guide) provides information on employment conditions applying to NSW Public Service employees and includes content previously included in the Personnel Handbook.

The Guide is consolidated reference resource which summarises employment conditions from legislation, awards, agreements, determinations and policies to assist human resources and industrial relations practitioners in Public Service agencies.

The Guide is regularly updated to address emerging issues and to reflect changes in legislation and new precedents such as tribunal decisions. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information provided we welcome advice on areas which require updating, correction, or would simply benefit from being revised to provide greater clarity.
