    (b) Every employer of such an employee must give the employee notice in writing of the provisions of clause 13.4 within four weeks of the employee having attained such period of six months. The employee retains their right of election under clause 13.4 if the employer fails to comply with clause 13.4(b).

    (c) Any such casual employee who does not within four weeks of receiving written notice elect to convert their contract of employment to full-time or part-time employment is deemed to have elected against any such conversion.

    (d) Any casual employee who has a right to elect under clause 13.4(a),on receiving notice under clause 13.4(b) or after the expiry of the time for giving such notice,may give four weeks notice in writing to the employer that they seek to elect to convert their contract of employment to full-time or part-time employment,and within four weeks of receiving such notice the employer must consent to or refuse the election but must not unreasonably so refuse.

    (e) Once a casual employee has elected to become and been converted to a full-time or part-time employee,the employee may only revert to casual employment by written agreement with the employer.

    (f) If a casual employee has elected to have their contract of employment converted to full-time or part-time employment in accordance with clause 13.4(d),the employer and employee must,subject to clause 13.4(d),discuss and agree on:

      (ii) if it is agreed that the employee will become a part-time employee,the number of hours and the pattern of hours that will be worked,as set out in clause 12Part-time employees.

    (g) An employee who has worked on a full-time basis throughout the period of casual employment has the right to elect to convert their contract of employment to full-time employment and an employee who has worked on a part-time basis during the period of casual employment has the right to elect to convert their contract of employment to part-time employment,on the basis of the same number of hours and times of work as previously worked,unless other arrangements are agreed on between the employer and employee.

    (h) Following such agreement being reached,the employee converts to full-time or part-time employment.

    (i) Where,in accordance with clause 13.4(d) an employer refuses an election to convert,the reasons for doing so must be fully stated to and discussed with the employee concerned and a genuine attempt made to reach agreement.

    (j) By agreement between the employer and the majority of the employees in the relevant workplace or a section or sections of it,or with the casual employee concerned,the employer may apply clause 13.4(a) as if the reference to six months is a reference to 12 months,but only in respect of a currently engaged individual employee or group of employees. Any such agreement reached must be kept by the employer as a time and wages record. Any such agreement reached with an individual employee may only be reached within the two months prior to the period of six months referred to in clause 13.4(a).

If an employee fails to give the required notice the employer may withhold from any monies due to the employee on termination under this award or the NES,an amount not exceeding the amount the employee would have been paid under this award in respect of the period of notice required by this clause less any period of notice actually given by the employee.

14.3 Job search entitlement

    Where an employer has given notice of termination to an employee,an employee must be allowed up to one day’s time off without loss of pay for the purpose of seeking other employment. The time off is to be taken at times that are convenient to the employee after consultation with the employer.

    Where an employee is transferred to lower paid duties by reason of redundancy,the same period of notice must be given as the employee would have been entitled to if the employment had been terminated and the employer may,at the employer’s option,make payment instead of an amount equal to the difference between the former ordinary time rate of pay and the ordinary time rate of pay for the number of weeks of notice still owing.

15.3 Employee leaving during notice period

    An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy may terminate their employment during the period of notice. The employee is entitled to receive the benefits and payments they would have received under this clause had they remained in employment until the expiry of the notice,but is not entitled to payment instead of notice.

15.4 Job search entitlement

    (a) An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy must be allowed up to one day’s time off without loss of pay during each week of notice for the purpose of seeking other employment.

    (b) If the employee has been allowed paid leave for more than one day during the notice period for the purpose of seeking other employment,the employee must,at the request of the employer,produce proof of attendance at an interview or they will not be entitled to payment for the time absent. For this purpose a statutory declaration is sufficient.

    (c) This entitlement applies instead of clause 14.3.

This schedule operates in conjunction with award provisions dealing with public holidays.

F.1 Where a part-day public holiday is declared or prescribed between 7.00 pm and midnight on Christmas Eve (24 December 2017) or New Year’s Even (31 December 2017) the following will apply on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve and will override any provision in this award relating to public holidays to the extent of the inconsistency:

    (a) All employees will have the right to refuse to work on the part-day public holiday if the request to work is not reasonable or the refusal is reasonable as provided for in the NES.

    (b) Where a part-time or full-time employee is usually rostered to work ordinary hours between 7.00 pm and midnight but as a result of exercising their right under the NES does not work,they will be paid their ordinary rate of pay for such hours not worked.

    (c) Where a part-time or full-time employee is usually rostered to work ordinary hours between 7.00 pm and midnight but as a result of being on annual leave does not work,they will be taken not to be on annual leave between those hours of 7.00 pm and midnight that they would have usually been rostered to work and will be paid their ordinary rate of pay for such hours.

    (d) Where a part-time or full-time employee is usually rostered to work ordinary hours between 7.00 pm and midnight,but as a result of having a rostered day off (RDO) provided under this award,does not work,the employee will be taken to be on a public holiday for such hours and paid their ordinary rate of pay for those hours.

    (e) Excluding annualised salaried employees to whom clause F.1(f) applies,where an employee works any hours between 7.00 pm and midnight they will be entitled to the appropriate public holiday penalty rate (if any) in this award for those hours worked.

    (f) Where an employee is paid an annualised salary under the provisions of this award and is entitled under this award to time off in lieu or additional annual leave for work on a public holiday,they will be entitled to time off in lieu or pro-rata annual leave equivalent to the time worked between 7.00 pm and midnight.

    (g) An employee not rostered to work between 7.00 pm and midnight,other than an employee who has exercised their right in accordance with clause F.1(a),will not be entitled to another day off,another day’s pay or another day of annual leave as a result of the part-day public holiday.

    (h) Nothing in this schedule affects the right of an employee and employer to agree to substitute public holidays.

This schedule is not intended to detract from or supplement the NES.

This schedule is an interim provision and subject to further review.
