Important notice re Coronavirus

18-Aug-2020

disAbility Living recognises the importance of the wellbeing of our Clients and Staff, therefore with the current concerns of Coronavirus, we have decided that we will cover the wages for all staff, including casuals, who are required to self-isolate.

This means that if you are requested to self-isolate by a health professional, that you will be paid any hours that you were rostered on for over that period up to 14 days. This payment will not impact any staff members personal or annual leave balances and the full cost will be absorbed by the organisation.

Any staff member that is feeling unwell with cold or flu like symptoms is asked to seek medical advice. If that advice is to self-isolate, then in the interests of our clients and other staff, you will be required to notify your direct supervisor immediately and isolate yourself at home.

Many of our clients fall into the highly vulnerable group in regard to the Coronavirus and therefore we want to do everything in our control to minimize the risk to them. I am aware that many of our staff work for other organisations in addition to disAbility Living and recognise that they most likely will not be offering the same conditions, however it is important that if you need to self-isolate from all of your employment you do so. The health and well being of all people living with a disability and the support workforce is vital.

Further to this we all need to be ready to act as a team to support our clients, therefore due to the most likely impact on staff availability, everyone is asked to come together and be willing to support where needed. This means all staff may be asked to work across different sites, programs and with different Clients, in the months ahead.

Regards

Matt Collins, CEO disAbility Living
