Employee Transitional Support Program

Employee Transitional Support Program

The program was delivered by ForestWorks Ltd and is now completed.

The Employee Transitional Support Program provided support payments to employees affected by particular circumstances as a result of the restructuring of the forest industry in Tasmania.

The program was targeted to assist:

  • employees who lost employment as a result of the implementation of the High Quality Sawlog Contract Voluntary Buyback Program and the Regional Sawmillers’ Structural Adjustment Program.
  • applicants under the Forest Worker Assistance Program whose cases were not previously addressed due to unresolved issues with their employment status and/or the exhaustion of available funding.
