Parliamentarians recruit staff on behalf of the Commonwealth under the Members of Parliament (Staff) Act 1984 (MOP(S) Act). MOP(S) Act employees may be employed on an ongoing, non-ongoing or casual basis.

There are various responsibilities employers need to know when recruiting staff, as well as forms and paperwork that should be completed before a MOP(S) Act employee commences, including the new employee contracts.

The new employees page provides you with information you need to know as a new MOP(S) Act employee.
