Are there different eligibility requirements for different types of reviews?

All current non-SES employees of the Australian Public Service (APS) (Section 22, Public Service Act) are eligible to apply for most types of review.

Only current APS 1–5 employees can apply for promotion reviews of decisions for APS 1–6 jobs.

Former APS employees only have rights of review concerning only:

  1. a decision made after their APS employment ceased that they breached the Code of Conduct during APS employment
  2. the final entitlements they were paid.

Employees of the Parliamentary Service have a similar review scheme. Parliamentary Service employees can also apply for a review of an APS promotion in some situations.
