Who is covered?
The following workers are covered under the scheme:
- workers (employees and contractors) directly performing relevant work as defined below; and
- working directors.
A worker can be an employee (e.g. working for salary or wages). Working Directors and Contractors can become voluntary members.
A key difference between employees and contractors is that employers must record service for their employees, while contractors and working directors have a choice on whether or not to record service for themselves.
All contract cleaning work conducted in the ACT (cleaning work means – work that has, as its only or main component, bringing premises into, or maintain premises in, a clean condition).
Includes drivers and sorters for waste management facilities under contract with the ACT Government, from 1 July 2016.
If in doubt, please contact the Authority for clarification.
Who is not covered?
Workers not performing relevant work (such as office/clerical/admin workers) are not covered by the scheme.
