The Eligibility for Re-Employment Register (the Register) assists agencies to check if former South Australian Public Sector employees are eligible for re-employment in the public sector.

In response to the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption’s recommendations, the Register was developed in consultation with agencies to support more rigorous integrity-checking during the recruitment process, and help achieve better informed recruitment outcomes.

The Register includes records of former public sector employees and public officers who have:

  • been dismissed on the grounds of misconduct; and/or
  • resigned during a misconduct investigation.

In addition, the Register also includes information about former public sector employees and public officers who have accepted a termination payment requiring exclusion from employment within the public sector for a period of time following resignation, as outlined in relevant policy. Examples include:

  • receipt of a Targeted Voluntary Separation Package (or other separation scheme such as the Teacher Renewal Program payment)
  • receipt of a worker’s compensation redemption
  • receipt of a termination package following executive employment or public office.

The Register aligns with the One Government One Employer program which aims to deliver improved and more efficient HR services on a whole-of-government basis.

Stringent security protocols are in place to protect the confidentiality of data in the Register.
