Meaning of "inefficient"

the performance of the duties that he is required to perform, he has not attained
or sustained a standard of efficiency that a person can reasonably be expected
to attain or sustain in the performance of those duties.
"(2) Without limiting the matters that may be taken into account for the purpose of
determining whether an employee has not, in the performance of the duties that he is
required to perform, attained or sustained a standard of efficiency referred to
in sub-regulation (1), regard-
(a) shall be had to-
(i) any written selection criteria or job specifications applicable to those duties;
(ii) any duty statements describing those duties; and
(iii) any written work standards and instructions relating to the manner
of performance of those duties; and
(b) may be had to-
(i) any written selection criteria or job specifications applicable to similar
duties that other employees in the same Department or prescribed Commonwealth authority
are required to perform;
(ii) any duty statements describing similar duties that other employees in the
same Department or prescribed Commonwealth authority are required to perform; and
(iii) any written work standards and instructions relating to the manner of performance
of similar duties that other employees in the same Department or prescribed Commonwealth
authority are required to perform.

Meaning of "not qualified"
"27. (1) For the purposes of regulation 25, an employee is not qualified to perform
his duties when, in relation to those duties-
(a) the employee has ceased to hold, or has become unable or ineligible to hold or
to use and enjoy, an essential qualification; or
(b) a court, person, authority or body that is competent to do so, has suspended,
or has cancelled, revoked, rescinded or otherwise withdrawn, an essential
qualification of the employee or the right of the employee to hold or to use
and enjoy an essential qualification.

"(2) In sub-regulation (1), a reference to an essential qualification, in relation
to an employee, is a reference to any statutory, professional, academic, commercial,
technical, trade, health or other qualification the holding of which is a prerequisite
to the practice of a profession, trade or calling, the exercise of a right or the
performance of a function or duty, being a profession, trade, calling, right,
function or duty that it is necessary for that employee to practise, exercise or
perform in the course of his employment.".
