The Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) and the Victorian Association of Performing Arts Centres (VAPAC) are partnering with the Department of Jobs, Skills, Industry and Regions to deliver a free information session about the Victorian Sick Pay Guarantee. This is an opportunity to learn about this pilot program and how it applies to casual workers at galleries and performing art centres. 

The Sick Pay Guarantee provides up to 38 hours a year of sick and carer’s pay to casual and contract workers in certain jobs.

  • who is eligible 
  • which jobs are included 
  • how workers can sign up 
  • how workers can claim sick and carer’s pay
