Message from the Senior Chairperson:
The Merit Protection Boards (MPB) office has reopened and our team is now settling into a new mode of working. The hearings for grievances and appeals have now returned to being conducted onsite at the MPB, subject to any changes in COVID-19 restrictions.
The MPB Statewide training programs advertised on this website (click the 'Training Dates' link at left) will continue in the online format however requests for face to face training will be considered where possible. Enrolments through LearnEd are filling courses quickly so if this is a professional development program you are keen to undertake please register as soon as you can so that you don't miss out this year. The feedback for the online training programs has been really positive and the program remains a valuable learning opportunity for those who attend.
I would like to thank the staff, our Board members and the many people we have worked with over the past 12 months for their efforts to ensure the work of the Board has continued and has maintained the very highest standard possible.
I will continue to update our website as changes occur.
