Our representation of employees with disability has remained constant at approximately 2.0% of our workforce. This trend is broadly in line with the trend occurring across the Australian Public Service.

We centralised management and funding arrangements for providing reasonable adjustment for people with disability. This has seen an increased demand for reasonable adjustment for employees with disability this year as managers are not required to make decisions about reasonable adjustments or to fund these adjustments.

Processes within our recruitment system ensure that successful job applicants are provided with reasonable adjustment when they commence with us. We entered into an agreement with the National Disability Recruitment Coordinator to promote our employment opportunities to Disability Employment Service providers. In June 2012, we completed a pilot of 'site-based disability advisors' in our Parramatta and Box Hill sites. We continued to provide a forum for feedback from employees with disability through our National Disability Network.
