The types of decisions that may be appealed against include:

  • a conversion decision;
  • a directive decision;
  • a disciplinary decision;
  • a fair treatment decision;
  • a promotion decision;
  • a suspension without pay decision;
  • a transfer decision;
  • a work performance direction decision; or
  • a decision about anything else against which another Act allows a person to appeal.
