Remote employment and participation submission

The Government is continuing the discussion on initial thinking on design principles and ideas around what a new remote employment and participation model could look like. The remote employment and participation discussion paper outlines three potential remote employment and participation model options: a new wage-based model, the CDP Reform Bill from 2015 and an improved version of current Community Development Programme. Some guiding questions have been included in the discussion to help inform responses.

This discussion is part of a broad consultation process that seeks input from a range of stakeholders and all views and comments are welcome.

All submissions received will be made publicly available and published on the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s website unless you advise us not to publish when lodging your submission.

If your submission is to be made public, please ensure you do not include any personal information that you don't want to be published.
