PRIME MINISTER’S 2005 EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR AWARDS

DO YOU KNOW A GREAT LOCAL EMPLOYER?

The Prime Minister’s 2005 Employer of the Year Awards for people with disabilities are now open for nominations, Member for Wannon, David Hawker, said today.

The Awards recognise leadership and innovation in employing people with disabilities.

“There are many employers out there who know that what counts in the workplace is a person’s ability, not their disability,” Mr Hawker said.

“I am continually encouraged by those businesses and employers who take the employment of people with disabilities in their stride and show great flexibility and commitment to giving people a go.

“I urge all workers with disabilities or employment service providers in Western Victoria to nominate local employers that they believe are doing a great job and are deserving of recognition,” he said.

There are eight categories of Awards covering national, large, medium and small business as well as higher education and Federal, State and Local Governments.

Further information and nomination forms are available at www.workplace.gov.au/eya or by calling 13 17 15.

Nominations close on Friday, 2 September 2005 with the state and territory and national winners to be announced later this year.
