Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The cards are arranged in alphabetical order by surname of employee. Researchers should scan the cards for the person(s) of interest.

  • Function / Content
    The Employee History Cards are a summary record documenting the employment details of personnel employed at Children's Homes. It is not known to what extent the personnel employed at Children's Homes during the period are covered.

    The main purpose of the cards was to record leave taken and staff movements. Other information provided by the cards includes the employee's name, date of birth (sometimes), position held (being mainly CCO - Child Care Officer), commencement date, date of separation from the agency, the reason why the employee finished, comments about work performance, placement information, and information in relation to the employee's training and progress with courses.

    Researchers should note that a review of this series at the time of transfer determined that the employee listings in this series is incomplete. The agency responsible for these records and Public Record Office Victoria have been unable to determine why this is the case. Employees who have been included in either Government Gazettes or Record Cards of Public Servants (VPRS 9889) do not always appear on the employee list in this series. If you are unable to find an employee who worked at this institution you may wish to refer to Record Cards of Public Servants (VPRS 9889) or Government Gazettes.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The cards are arranged alphabetically by surname of employee.

    Please note files may feature labels from a numbering system imposed by the controlling Department generated from TRIM electronic document and records management system. This system does not reflect the original recordkeeping system of the series.
