Equal employment opportunity

Equal employment opportunity (EEO) means the absence of discrimination or less favourable treatment in employment based on attributes such as a person’s sex, age, race, disability, etc.

North Coast Primary Health Network (NCPHN) is committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity which undertakes to:

  • Create an environment where workers are able to work effectively, without fear of discrimination
  • Establish appropriate programs in employment to overcome disadvantage in employment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disabilities, women and other equity groups
  • Ensure that all workers have reasonable access to benefits and services
  • Have policies and procedures in place that ensure that employment practices are free from discrimination, and that appointment is based on merit

Workplace Gender Equality

Gender equality is achieved when people are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of whether they are a woman or a man.

The aim of gender equality in the workplace is to achieve broadly equal outcomes for women and men, not exactly the same outcome for all individuals. In support of gender equity NCPHN:

  • Provides equal remuneration for women and men for work of equal or comparable value
  • Seeks to remove barriers to the full and equal participation of women in the workforce
  • Provides full and genuine access to all occupations, including to leadership roles for women and men
  • Eliminates discrimination on the basis of gender particularly in relation to family and caring responsibilities for both women and men
