This is a trying time for everyone as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.

We’re working hard to address all the issues as they come up, and one concern that many north west members are contacting us about is returning to work after quarantine.

It’s difficult because most quarantine periods are based on when you were last at work, or in contact with a particular person, and it’s even more challenging with the ever-changing response to the pandemic.

We wrote to the secretary of your department to ensure you’re not forgotten through this extraordinary phase and we expect that supervisors and managers will be keeping in contact to make sure you’re coping as best you can and to discuss returning to work.

At this stage, you shouldn’t return until you‘ve talked with your manager, or are directed to return, and if you’ve finished or are nearing the end of your quarantine period and haven’t been contacted you should contact your manager.

If you have concerns about any advice you get in your workplace, particularly if it contradicts advice from public health officials or us, you can discuss that with our team at HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or assist@hacsu.org.au

Thanks for all the vital work you do helping your fellow Tasmanians - you’re all the real MVPs!

For more information about this or any other industrial matter, members should contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or email assist@hacsu.org.au or complete our online contact form
