    P

    =

    –––––

    D

     

     

     

    B

     

     

     

    P

    is the payment due

    S

    is the total salary paid in respect of term weeks,or part thereof,since the school or preschool service date or the date of employment in circumstances where the employee has been employed by the employer since the school or preschool service date

    B

    is the number of term weeks,or part thereof in the school or preschool year

    C

    is the number of non-term weeks,or part thereof,in the school or preschool year

    D

    is the salary paid in respect of non-term weeks,or part thereof,that have occurred since the school or preschool service date or date of employment in circumstances where the employee has been employed by the employer since the school or preschool service date

22.6 The formula in clause 22.5 is intended to be used to calculate the pro rata salary inclusive of annual leave owing to an employee in respect of the school/preschool year in which the formula is applied.

22.7 Employees who commence employment after the commencement of the school or preschool year

    An employee who commences employment after the usual date of commencement at a school or preschool in any school/preschool year,will be paid from the date the employee commences provided that at the end of the last school/preschool term or final semester in that year,the employee must be paid an amount calculated pursuant to clause 22.5 and will receive no salary or other payment other than payment under clause 22.7 until:

    (a) the school or preschool service date or the resumption of Term 1;or

    (b) first semester in the following school/preschool year.

    (a) if the leave without pay commences and concludes in the same school/preschool year,the payment will be calculated and made at the conclusion of the last school/preschool term or final semester in that year;

    (b) if the leave without pay is to conclude in a school/preschool year following the school/preschool year in which the leave commenced:

      (i) at the commencement of the leave,a payment will be calculated and made in respect of the school/preschool year in which the leave commences;and

    (a) at the time that the employee is paid annual leave or pro rata annual leave;or

    (b) on the termination of employment by either party.

23.3 Leave loading is to be calculated using the following formula:

    [Weekly rate x 4 x 17.5%] x term weeks worked by the employee in that school year

    Total term weeks in that school year

    For example,in the case of an employee with a weekly salary of $1000 on termination of employment (or at the end of the final term week in the school year) who was employed at the school for 20 of the 38 term weeks in that school year,the calculation will be as follows:

    $1000 x 4 x 17.5% = $700

    $700 x 20/38 = $368.42

23.4 Clause 23.3 does not apply to teachers covered by Schedule A—Hours of Work and Related Matters—Teachers employed in early childhood services operating for at least 48 weeks per year.

23.5 Despite clauses 23.2 and 23.3,an employer may pay annual leave loading to the employee with each wage payment throughout the school year by increasing the annual rate of pay as at the commencement of the school year,or as subsequently varied,by 1.342%.

    (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 on the declared or prescribed part-day public holiday 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 on the declared or prescribed part-day public holiday but as a result of being on annual leave does not work,they will be taken not to be on annual leave during the hours of the declared or prescribed part-day public holiday 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 on the declared or prescribed part-day public holiday,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 G.2(f) applies,where an employee works any hours on the declared or prescribed part-day public holiday 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 on the declared or prescribed part-day public holiday.

    (g) An employee not rostered to work on the declared or prescribed part-day public holiday,other than an employee who has exercised their right in accordance with clause G.2(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.
