Staff as carers

Federation University recognises that many of our staff have caring commitments (for children, parents, partners etc) as well as their work responsibilities.

There are a range of flexible working options staff may wish to consider. Some of these include reasonable adjustments and workplace flexibility.

Disability and Carers helpline

Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides confidential counselling and other supports for staff through a third party, Converge International.

Our EAP also provides a dedicated Disability and Carers specialist helpline on 1300 243 543. Staff engaging with a helpline specialist may request the remainder of their sessions with the same or a different specialist.

For more information on the University’s EAP please visit 'Counselling and other support' on the Health and wellbeing web page.
