Description of this FunctionDescription of this Function
Background

The Victorian Employment Committee commenced operation in January 1979 within the Premier's portfolio. The Committee comprised members from employers and employee groups, education and social service organisations, and business and economic advisory groups.

The Committee's functions were to:
examine employment and employment-related matters
report to Cabinet (through a Cabinet Sub-Committee) on employment-related policies and programs upon which action might be recommended
consider submissions for financial assistance.

The Committee operated through a number of Sub-Committees:
Technological Change and Alternative Work Modes
Economic Policy
Small Business and Co-operatives
Regional Employment and Development
Youth Employment
Assistance to Groups with Special Needs
Education, Training and Retraining
Community Involvement and Public Awareness.

It is not certain whether the Committee existed to 1982.

The Employment and Training Act 1981 provided for the re-constitution of both the Victorian Employment Committee and the Victorian Technology Advisory Committee (VA 2668). Both Committees (as reconstituted) were appointed and met for the first time in 1982. The re-constituted Committees reported to the Minister of Employment and Training (VRG 42).

The Victorian Employment Committee was vested under the Act with responsibility for advising the Minister on a range of issues including:

the likely effects of major employment and training proposals
the priorities among competing policies
ways of ensuring effective co-ordination of the activities of all agencies with employment and training responsibilities.

The Committee ceased to exist circa 1986.
