Employee Transitional Support Program

​​The program was delivered by ForestWorks Ltd and is now completed.

The Employee Transitional Support Program provided support payments to employees affected by particular circumstances as a result of the restructuring of the forest industry in Tasmania.

The program was targeted to assist:

  • employees who lost employment as a result of the implementation of the High Quality Sawlog Contract Voluntary Buyback Program and the Regional Sawmillers’ Structural Adjustment Program.

  • applicants under the Forest Worker Assistance Program whose cases were not previously addressed due to unresolved issues with their employment status and/or the exhaustion of available funding.
