3 Staff employed as public servants generally have their employment conditions determined through the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement.

4. Staff may also be employed by the head of the relevant portfolio department and assigned to the entity. The SSA does not recommend this option as it can create confusion as to lines of responsibility and accountability, with entity staff reporting on a day-to-day basis to managers who are not responsible for their employment.
