(1988 Act, s 91)(1) This section applies to a person who is removed from office under section 116.(2) A person to whom this section applies is entitled to engagement in the public sector, if:(a) for a continuous period ending immediately before appointment to the office the person was at all times engaged in the public sector on a full-time basis, and(b) for at least some part of that engagement the person was an employee in the public sector.(3) The engagement to which the person is entitled under this section is to be an engagement:(a) at a salary not lower than the current salary for the previous engagement of the person as such an employee, and(b) with duties appropriate to that salary.(4) The person is not entitled to any compensation for the removal from office or to any remuneration in respect of the office for any period afterwards.

(1988 Act, s 93)A person to whom section 117 applies may, before being engaged in the public sector under that section, elect in writing to take compensation referred to in section 118, and on the election taking effect the person ceases to be entitled to engagement in the public sector under section 117.
(1988 Act, s 94)(1) This Chapter prevails over any inconsistent provision of any other Act or law or of the terms of appointment of or contract with a person.(2) Part 6 (Unfair dismissals) and Part 9 (Unfair contracts) of Chapter 2 of the Industrial Relations Act 1996 do not apply to or in respect of the removal of a term appointee from office under this Chapter.(3) This Chapter applies to a person appointed to a statutory office even though the Act concerned excludes the application of this Act, unless it expressly excludes the application of this Chapter.(4) This Chapter applies to persons holding office at the commencement of this Chapter, as well as to persons appointed to an office afterwards.(5) Disentitlement under this Chapter to salary of an office does not apply as regards a subsequent re-appointment to the office.(6) This Chapter does not apply to a person in the person’s capacity as:(a) the Governor, the Lieutenant-Governor or other officer administering the Government, or(b) a member of the Executive Council, a Minister of the Crown, a member of either House of Parliament or the holder of any other political office, or(c) the holder of a judicial office, or(d) the Parliamentary Remuneration Tribunal, or(e) a member of the NSW Police Force.
