What is MyPortal?
Many employees with a disability have special pay rates and conditions at work. These come from the award that covers their job.
There is also a minimum wage for employees with disability who aren’t covered by an award. The pay rate depends on how much the disability affects their work.
Employees with disability are also protected from discrimination at work. This protection also applies to people in the process of applying for a job. For example, someone can’t be rejected from a job during the hiring process because they have a physical or mental disability.
See the Discrimination section for more information, including what you can do if you think you’ve lost your job, been treated differently or haven’t been hired for a job because of disability.
