Overworked Staff Displeased

PBRF BLAMED AGAIN

The TEU has said it is still dealing with a number of personal disputes relating to the Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF).

By improving their research output, Universities receive more money from the fund. However employees have cited workload and performance pressure.

Between March and April the TEU handled over 150 personal cases at 28 tertiary institutions, and is usually investigating at least 100 cases at any one time.

In March, Victoria’s Dr Martin Lally accused the University of manipulating the lengths of its employees contracts in order to improve its PBRF result, but an investigation found no wrongdoing by the University.

The University wanted to provide a statement the current issues, but was unable to do so before Salient went to print.
