The Ministry of Health recognises the important role of care and support workers and the services that they provide. It is committed to both the implementation of the Settlement Agreement across all parties and the ongoing management of these critical services.

This is an operational policy document for the Care and Support Workers (Pay Equity) Settlement. There are different versions specific to providers of Aged Residential Care, Home and Community Services and Community Residential Living. The purpose of these documents is to provide guidance on the implementation of Settlement Agreement for the Vote Health funded sector.
