An action relating to employment means …Comment
Actions relating to the employee's employment and not someone else's employment

The applicant is seeking review of something in which they have a direct personal interest.

An applicant can't apply for a review of an action that affected their colleague.

Sometimes it isn't clear whether an action concerns an applicant as well as a colleague, or only a colleague.

For example, an employee witnessing bullying and harassment of a colleague may be affected by what they saw. They may be able to establish sufficient personal interest to be eligible for review.

Actions relating to employment and not to the employee's status as a client of an APS agency

For example, an employee who applies for a social security benefit is a client of that agency. They are not eligible to apply for a review of interactions as a client.
