Over the last 30 years, Lasercraft has developed a culture of absolute support for our Supported Employees.
Supported Employees at Lasercraft are engaged in electing Employee Representatives each year. Employee Representatives present an employee report to the Board of Directors at their bi-monthly meetings.
Lasercraft has an Employee Committee made up of past, present and those nominated for the employee representative position.

Employee meetings are held monthly where Supported Employees receive training on their rights under the Australian Disability Services Standards. They are also provided with opportunities to have their say on the day to day operations at Lasercraft which impact on their working day.
Lasercraft has a support needs review process that has multiple steps from initial interviews with families and carers to review among Support Staff and a goal setting interview with the Supported Employee to devise both support needs and an Employment Assistance Plan. All documentations is sent home for review before plans and supports are actioned.
