A wide range of decisions or actions are reviewable.
You can only seek review of an employment action or decision that has affected you personally. For example, you cannot seek review of an agency’s decision not to investigate a colleague for suspected misconduct unless that colleague’s behaviour has affected you personally in your employment.
You can find de-identified case summaries on a range of employment matters, at case summaries in MPC resources.
Some common examples are:
- leave applications, including flex leave
- access to training
- allowances and reimbursements
- performance management, including underperformance
- employee health and absence management
- complaints about bullying and harassment.
Termination of employment is not reviewable by the Merit Protection Commissioner. If your employment was terminated, you can take your case to the Fair Work Commission.
