Social services – delivering the social workers pay equity extension

Social workers, and those undertaking similar work, will receive pay equity.

From 1 July 2023, agencies who have active contracts or funding agreements for social workers must vary those contracts or agreements. This is to deliver the pay equity settlement agreed by Cabinet.

The social worker pay equity extensions include:

  • a new step-based pay system, providing annual progression through steps
  • pay correction - translating employee salaries to the appropriate place on the new pay spine (based on years of experience)
  • access to a suite of professional support funding.
