The Professional Scientists Employment and Remuneration Report (“Report”) is published by Professionals Australia and is available for purchase by both Professionals Australia members (“Members”) and the general public (“Corporate / Non-members”). As a benefit of their Professionals Australia membership, members are entitled to a discount, but only under the terms and conditions detailed below.
Organisations who wish to utilise the information contained within the Report or online to review employee salaries must purchase the Report at the normal corporate price. Professionals Australia reserves the right to reject any corporate order placed using a member’s ID to obtain a discount, if deemed to be in breach of these terms and conditions of purchase.
The information contained within the Report is intended only for disclosure to and use by the person and/or organisation whose name and address has been recorded by Professionals Australia as the purchaser of the Report (“the Purchaser”).
The Professional Scientists Employment and Remuneration Report is published as a downloadable pdf, as a downloadable excel spreadsheet and an interactive online database accessible via the Professionals Australia website using a unique username and password combination.
The purchaser is responsible for obtaining the necessary software required to access and view the downloadable report files. Professionals Australia takes no responsibility for any technical difficulties arising from accessing these files once successfully downloaded from our website.
Access to the report requires use of unique log-in credentials issued by Professionals Australia to the purchaser. Credentials can take up to a full business day to be issued. Contact Professionals Australia directly if you require these to be issued sooner, or have difficulties logging in.
Once your online e-commerce transaction is complete, a confirmation page will be presented. Please print the confirmation page, as this represents your receipt/tax invoice for GST purposes.
Orders placed by other means will be supplied with a tax invoice by post once your order has been processed and payment received.
Members’ only / Participants’ price
Those persons who purchase a copy of the Report using a valid Professionals Australia membership ID to receive the members’ only discount price (“the discount price”), must not distribute the information contained in the Report, nor the username and password assigned for online access, to their employer, colleagues, employees or any other person(s), without consent from Professionals Australia.
The purchase of the Report by either members or participants at the discount price allows use of the printed report and the username/password for online access by the Purchaser only. Purchasers cannot buy the Report at the discount price on behalf of their employer or any other organisation. Members may only purchase one (1) copy per edition of the Survey Report at the discount price – any subsequent purchases will be charged at the normal corporate rate.
