COVID-19 and the workplace

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the role of Speech Pathology Australia is to support its members so they understood their obligations while working as health professionals, including the actions required to adhere to public health orders.

The information provided is to help members understand how to adapt service delivery options depending on the current situation and advice.

The Association does not generate its own policies and procedures regarding providing services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is always important for speech pathologists and practice owners to understand their workplace rights and obligations.

Members with any questions or requiring more detailed or tailored information are advised to seek professional advice, whether this be through the WHS authority in your jurisdiction, the Fair Work Ombudsman or an HR consultancy that works closely with the allied health sector such as WorkPlacePLUS.
