What is the Employment Portal?

The Employment Portal is your online guide to NSW government sector employment. The Employment Portal provides access to legislative and policy information which supports the Government Sector Employment Act 2013.

The Employment Portal is maintained by the Public Service Commission. Enquiries about the Employment Portal can be emailed to employmentportal@psc.nsw.gov.au.

What will happen to the Personnel Handbook?

The Personnel Handbook has been an important employment and workforce management policy resource which supports the legislative framework under the Public Service Employment and Management Act 2002.

On 24 February 2014, the Government Sector Employment Act 2013 commenced and replaced the Public Service Employment and Management Act 2002.

With the commencement of the Government Sector Employment Act 2013, large parts of the Personnel Handbook need to be revised or replaced.

Over time, the Personnel Handbook will be phased out, and will be replaced by the guidelines and other resources available on the Employment Portal. The Personnel Handbook will continue to remain available as an archived resource.
