Disability and Employment

One in five people in Australia are likely to have some sort of disability. In recognition of this and in support of its aim to be responsive to the diversity of its communities, the University is committed to providing an accessible and inclusive work and study environment where people with disability can participate fully in all aspects of University life.

The University will work with staff members who have a temporary or permanent medical condition, injury or disability that impacts on their ability to do their job by:

  • taking steps to ensure that their workplace is accessible;
  • introducing reasonable workplace accommodations (workplace adjustment) that enable the staff member to work effectively and meet the inherent requirements of their position.
