Review of promotion decisions
Ongoing APS and Parliamentary service employees who have applied for a promotion may apply to the Merit Protection Commissioner to have certain promotion decisions reviewed.
What is a promotion review?
The fundamental principle underpinning recruitment and promotion decisions in the public sector is 'merit'. Merit is defined in the our governing legislation and set out in the public sector Employment Principles.
We offer employees a fair and independent merits review of certain promotion and engagement decisions. The purpose of reviewing promotion decisions is to ensure the person with the most merit has been promoted to the role.
