Employment conditions

The Clean Energy Regulator Enterprise Agreement 2019–2022 sets out the terms and conditions of employment for our employees. The Enterprise Agreement included a 6 per cent salary increase over three years, in line with the Australian Public Service Commissioner’s Workplace Bargaining Policy.

The salary increase, to be paid on 25 December 2020, was deferred by six months in accordance with the Determination issued under s.24(3) of the Public Service Act 2009 by the Hon Ben Morton MP.

The details of non-salary benefits are included in our Enterprise Agreement, available on our website.

Our Enterprise Agreement applies to all employees except those on individual flexibility arrangements, our Senior Executive Service (SES) and Chair. The position of Chair is a statutory appointment with conditions of employment determined by the Remuneration Tribunal.

As at 30 June 2020:

  • 10 non-SES employees were covered under individual flexibility arrangements, and
  • terms and conditions for our 11 SES officers were outlined in individual determinations under section 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999, made by the Chair.

In 2019–20, no performance pay in the form of one-off bonuses was awarded to the Clean Energy Regulator’s SES officers. Non-SES officers who achieve a performance outcome of ‘Meets’ or ‘Exceeds’ expectation are recognised by incremental advancement consistent with conditions outlined in the Enterprise Agreement.
