Supporting Employees with Carer Responsibilities

The Authority fully supports employees with carer responsibilities. Carer support, consistent with the requirements under sections 7 and 8 of the Carer Recognition Act 2010, includes:

  • Family friendly work arrangements
  • Specific leave provisions to support staff with caring responsibilities
  • A non-discriminatory definition of family that recognises family members by blood, marriage, traditional kinship, current or de-facto partner, and those in a genuine domestic or household relationship
