The Queensland community services sector has been in a challenging, complex and confusing industrial relations and funding environment over the past few years.

Since 2008 the sector has seen: the creation of a new state award, the Queensland pay equity decision, Queensland’s referral of its industrial relations powers to the Commonwealth, award modernisation, the federal equal remuneration decision, two regulations and the provision of supplementary funding to some organisations from both the state and federal governments.

More recently there have been a number of government reforms processes affecting the sector. You can find out more about these in the Community Door section on social service reform.

This section of the Community Door website is to assist organisations and workers in the social, community, home care and disability services industry in Queensland. In this section you will find current news, resources and other information on the topic of industrial relations.
