UniSA's core purpose is as an education provider, it is also a provider of goods and services, a body corporate and a recipient of Commonwealth funding and an employer. Through these functions the University is obliged to compy with wide ranging legislative and policy requirements. You should get to know the University's policies and procedures as it is critical that you understand your responsibilities in these areas.

These include:

The Quick Guide to the Legislated and Ethical Responsibilities of Staff  and The ‘Risk management for managers’ resource provide an overview of essential knowledge and links to where you can find more detailed information. We offer these two resources as a starting point as you begin to work your way through UniSA policies and procedures during the induction process, when your role changes or at any stage you want to revisit what you need to know.

We encourage you to read these guides in your first month of employment and to discuss any issues that they raise for you and for your role with your manager.
