The NDIS – what does it mean for the NFP sector?

Monday 15 August 2016

The insurance-based funding model under the NDIS will fundamentally impact the way disability care and support is provided in Australia. We predict there will be significant movement in the Not-For-Profit (NFP) sector during this time of uncertainty and adjustment.

NFP organisations will need to maximise their opportunities under the NDIS. It is essential that organisational change be carefully managed. The evolution of the NFP sector in the wake of the NDIS is likely to see changes to the structure and ownership of many NFPs. This may lead to substantial changes to employees’ roles and employment conditions. These sorts of changes are subject to considerable regulation under the Fair Work Act 2009 and applicable industrial instruments.

We had the opportunity to discuss the key considerations during periods of organisational change with a number of our NFP clients at our inaugural NFP HR Managers Forum held at Maddocks Melbourne office earlier this year.
