Remuneration Policies and Practices

Remuneration for the President and Commissioners is set by the Remuneration Tribunal. The Remuneration Tribunal also determines increases to remuneration and allowances.

The Commission’s remuneration for SES and other highly paid staff is determined by the President under s 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999. When determining SES and other highly paid staff remuneration, the President has regard to the Australian Public Service Remuneration report and comparable agencies.

SES determinations set out salary on commencement and provide for increments of salary, in line with percentage increases awarded to the Commissioners by the Remuneration Tribunal.
