Service Suspensions

Overview:
Throughout 2022 & 2023 ATSILS (QLD) had to make the difficult decision to temporarily suspend a range of services in several regions. The regions affected included Cairns, Townsville, Mt Isa, Maroochydore, Rockhampton, Brisbane, Beenleigh, Strathpine, Rockhampton and Ipswich (Richlands).

Due to additional funding provided by the Queensland Government, ATSILS (QLD) has been able to successfully recruit a number of new staff to mitigate most of the service suspensions in these regions. Below is a short update relevant to each location.

Cairns
Update September 2023: Cairns remains our greatest challenge due to a combination of factors. At this stage, the current temporary service suspensions are likely to continue at least until the end of October.

Rockhampton
Update September 2023: Rockhampton remains a significant challenge due to a scarcity of prospective recruits in or into the region. At this stage, the current temporary service suspensions will continue until at least the end of October – possibly longer.

Townsville
Update September 2023: Due to successful recruitment initiatives in this region, all service suspensions are expected to be lifted as of the end of September.

Brisbane Office
Update September 2023: Due to successful recruitment initiatives in this region, all service suspensions are expected to be lifted as of the end of September.

Maroochydore
Update September 2023: An additional legal practitioner allocated to Maroochydore out of the funding commences at the end of October – so it is likely that the temporary suspensions out of this office will need to remain in place at least until then.

Mount Isa
Update September 2023: All service suspensions were lifted at the end of August.

Ipswich
Update September 2013: Due to recent successful recruitments – the temporary service suspension (Richlands Courthouse) will end as of the 9th of October.

Beenleigh and Strathpine
Prior Suspensions – since lifted (Update September 2023: no changes – no suspensions in place).

In conclusion
ATSILS (QLD) received excellent funding outcome news in mid-June. This has seen a significant increase in staff morale and our retention and recruitment. We cannot thank the Attorney, the associated departmental staff, and all others concerned, enough.

This week our team delivered a CLE session at Indigenous Youth Mobility Pathway (IYMP) in Cairns. This was a collaboration with Work Ready training service for youth from remote regions. The session aims to use early prevention education on the issue of workplace sexual harassment to enhance the preparation of these youth for the workforce.

The sessions were well received, and the students said they learned a lot and could enter the workforce with more confidence and knowledge with respect to identifying workforce sexual harassment.

ATSILS Respect@Work Service Solicitor Cicilia Halaholo also offered ongoing support for the community through the provision of private legal advice & information after the group session. Cicilia is pictured below with Andrea Hodges – IYMP Manager.

Students had access to ample legal information handouts, brochures & ATSILS merchandise to take home to consolidate learnings and to help build stronger platforms for this next generation to succeed in the workforce.
