38 Employment Instruction 7 Discipline The departments Discipline Policy is available on the intranet site for all staff to access. Human Resources staff provide assistance to managers in dealing with discipline issues. Employment Instruction 8 Management of Grievances Human Resources staff continue to promote sound workplace practices, with workshops encouraging appropriate workplace behaviour delivered to about 80 per cent of the departments staff. Information is available for staff to access on the intranet site. Employment Instruction 10 Employee Records All personal employment records are securely maintained and stored by the Department of Corporate and Information Services (DCIS) on behalf of the Department of Justice. Access to personal employment records and PIPS information is restricted. Employment Instruction 11 Equal Opportunity Management Plan The departments Diversity Policy is available to all staff on the intranet site. Results from the Staff Satisfaction Survey carried out in May 2005 were analysed and have been made available to staff in all divisions. Although the participation rate for this initial survey was low at 33 per cent, the results indicated that staff are generally satisfied in the workplace. Human Resources staff are assisting with focus groups and the development of targeted action plans as required. Employment Instruction 12 Occupational Health and Safety Plan An Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Partnering Agreement was signed between the department and DCIS, which reflects the departments commitment to continuous improvement. OH&S is included in the orientation program for all new staff to ensure awareness of OH&S rights and responsibilities. The department has an active case management program for work-related injuries to ensure speedy rehabilitation and return to the workplace. The introduction of a pro-active early intervention program has reduced the number of workers compensation claims across the agency. Employment Instruction 13 Code of Conduct All new employees receive a copy of the Code of Conduct and the content is then discussed during the orientation program. Electronic copies of the booklet are available through the departments intranet site. Custodial Officers continue to receive extensive training specific to the Code of Conduct during the Prison Officer in Training (POIT) recruit course. Employment Instruction 14 Part Time Employment The Department of Justice continues to support flexible work arrangements to enable a balance of work and family commitments.
