As of April 2018, 15 AER clients have been employed in administrative positions under the Public Sector Act 2009. Two ERA clients were referred to police recruitment and were employed as community constables. Business negotiations began in March 2018. They have been open and constructive and have led to an appropriate increase in wages, offset by major efficiency and industry reforms. Treasurer Rob Lucas said PASA had worked with the government to reach an agreement. The agreement, which extends the duration of the existing enterprise agreement until 30 June 2020, will strengthen SAPOL`s capacity by increasing the availability of police officers for front-line tasks and providing for two annual salary increases. “This administrative agreement honours the important work our hard-working police officers do to keep our community safe and ensures that SAPOL has the resources and flexibility to effectively implement the government`s plan to build state capacity on the front lines,” said Treasurer Lucas. SAET`s role is to approve the agreement if it meets the specific requirements of the Fair Work Act 1994. The wage increases were calculated in accordance with the terms of the enterprise agreement reached by the former Labour government, which requires that police officers` salaries in South Australia be adjusted to 60% of the difference between the third and fourth level of remuneration in all intergovernmental jurisdictions. This means that actual increases are both slightly above and below average, depending on the classification. A specialized audit and risk management service (ARMS) strategically oversees fraud and related issues reported to the Anti-Corruption Department or the Department of Ethical and Professional Standards.
In addition, they carry out targeted sampling checks on critical air-based services, such as police cells, police stations, financial management and real estate issues.

An enterprise agreement sets out the conditions of employment of workers covered by the agreement. It is negotiated through a premium security network to help employers and workers define working conditions that will support their needs. If you are a party to a signed enterprise agreement, you must apply for SAET authorization within 21 days for SAET to approve it. After approval, the agreement will enter into force. Marshall`s Liberal government has agreed with the South Australian Police Association (PASA) on a new interim agreement on salaries and conditions for sworn police officers. SAET may also reconcile or give instructions when parties are working to negotiate an agreement.
