Description

This series comprises cards prepared under the Aborigines' and Torres Strait Islanders' Affairs Act of 1965. These cards were created to record details regarding employment in the Doomadgee Aboriginal Community. Although the cards contain similar information to the related Doomadgee unemployment cards (QS318), they were compiled separately. This series also contains similar and additional information to Doomadgee identification cards and permit cards (QS319/1, QS319/2 and QS316).

The employment cards record details in some or all of the following entries: name of person, file number, date of birth, place of birth, sex, address, parent's names, occupation, marital status, name of spouse (if wife-her maiden name), place and date married, spouse's date of birth (sometimes place of birth) and names of her/his parent's, children's names, dates and place of birth, place where living, and the recognized paternity. On the back of the card, or in many cases attached to this card, is another card which lists employment details including: dates for two columns headed by social security reference numbers - S.U.2 and S.U.19A and/or S.U.19B, employment commencement date, employment finishing date, place of employment and reason for finishing. It may also be indicated on the cards as to whether the person is deceased (and the date and place of death).

Note that these records relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples contain language which is now considered offensive. These cards contain material which may cause distress.

NB: Not all cards contain information in every category listed above. Some cards record limited detail , eg., name of the person only. Note also that photocopies of some individual cards are included in this series and are in rough alphabetical order from 'C to G'.
