Government departments say they do not discriminate against employees at the GCSR, despite a series of revelations about their behaviour.
A series of GCSBs have been ordered to pay back hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to employees over the past two years for making incorrect claims.
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is now investigating complaints against GCRBs.
Earlier this year, Fairfax Media revealed the GCRB was in the process of removing its employee registry.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) said the GCA did not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, age, gender, citizenship, or any other protected characteristic.
“DFAT’s policy is that employees must be treated with respect and dignity,” DFAT said.
It said the Government “does not discriminate in the employment of staff on the grounds of race, colour, national or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability and other protected characteristics”.
“Staff must be able to work with colleagues on their own terms and for the benefit of the broader community.”‘
This is not discrimination’ Government spokesperson for public affairs, Kate Wilkinson, said there was “no suggestion that there is discrimination on the ground of gender”.
“The GCA’s general practice is to seek to ensure that individuals with disabilities have a job that is suitable for their needs, and that the Government recognises the rights and obligations of individuals to make accurate and timely claims for benefits,” she said.”GCSB policies are not designed to discriminate against individuals who are disabled.”
The Department of Justice and Human Services (DHHS) said its policy was to investigate claims of discrimination and referred to the Department’s Human Rights Committee.
DFAT said it was also “looking into a complaint from a staff member” about GCSMs not being allowed to use public transport.
