Secondary review for agency HR Staff
Review of actions - secondary review
Information for agency HR staff
Applications for secondary review of action are lodged with the Merit Protection Commissioner through the relevant agency. Public Service Regulation 5.30 requires that you provide applications for secondary review to the Merit Protection Commissioner, along with any relevant documents relating to the primary review, within 14 days after receiving the application. You must also give to the employee a copy of any documents given to the Merit Protection Commissioner.
The Australian Public Service Commission has prepared a checklist to assist agencies to identify the documents that might be relevant to the review. As the Commission has centralised the administration of reviews of action in their Sydney office in the Review Team, the application for secondary review and relevant documents relating to the primary review should be sent to:
The Merit Protection Commissioner
Australian Public Service Commission
PO Box 20636
World Square Post Office
SYDNEY NSW 2002
Further information can be obtained from the Review team by email to email@example.com, or by phone to 02 8239 5330.
