      (b) A regular casual employee is a casual employee who has in the preceding period of 12 months worked a pattern of hours on an ongoing basis which,without significant adjustment,the employee could continue to perform as a full-time employee or part-time employee under the provisions of this award.

      (g) Reasonable grounds for refusal include that:

        (i) it would require a significant adjustment to the casual employee’s hours of work in order for the employee to be engaged as a full-time or part-time employee in accordance with the provisions of this award –that is,the casual employee is not truly a regular casual employee as defined in clause 11.4(b);

        (ii) it is known or reasonably foreseeable that the regular casual employee’s position will cease to exist within the next 12 months;

        (iii) it is known or reasonably foreseeable that the hours of work which the regular casual employee is required to perform will be significantly reduced in the next 12 months;or

        (iv) it is known or reasonably foreseeable that there will be a significant change in the days and/or times at which the employee’s hours of work are required to be performed in the next 12 months which cannot be accommodated within the days and/or hours during which the employee is available to work.

      (h) For any ground of refusal to be reasonable,it must be based on facts which are known or reasonably foreseeable.

      (i) Where the employer refuses a regular casual employee’s request to convert,the employer must provide the casual employee with the employer’s reasons for refusal in writing within 21 days of the request being made.

      (j) If the employee does not accept the employer’s refusal,this will constitute a dispute that will be dealt with under the dispute resolution procedure in clause 29Dispute resolution. Under that procedure,the employee or the employer may refer the matter to the Fair Work Commission if the dispute cannot be resolved at the workplace level.

      (k) Where it is agreed that a casual employee will have their employment converted to full-time or part-time employment as provided for in clause 11.4,the employer and employee must discuss and record in writing:

        (i) the form of employment to which the employee will convert –that is,full-time or part-time employment;and

        (ii) if it is agreed that the employee will become a part-time employee,the matters referred to in clause 10.3.

      (l) The conversion will take effect from the start of the next pay cycle following such agreement being reached unless otherwise agreed.

      (m) Once a casual employee has converted to full-time or part-time employment,the employee may only revert to casual employment with the written agreement of the employer.

      (n) A casual employee must not be engaged and re-engaged (which includes a refusal to re-engage),or have their hours reduced or varied,in order to avoid any right or obligation under clause 11.4.

      (o) Nothing in clause 11.4 obliges a regular casual employee to convert to full-time or part-time employment,nor permits an employer to require a regular casual employee to so convert.

      (p) Nothing in clause 11.4 requires an employer to increase the hours of a regular casual employee seeking conversion to full-time or part-time employment.

      (q) An employer must provide a casual employee,whether a regular casual employee or not,with a copy of the provisions of this subclause within the first 12 months of the employee’s first engagement to perform work. In respect of casual employees already employed as at 1 October 2018,an employer must provide such employees with a copy of the provisions of this subclause by 1 January 2019.

      (r) A casual employee’s right to request to convert is not affected if the employer fails to comply with the notice requirements in clause 11.4(q).

11.5 Change in the basis of employment

      Nothing in this award prevents the employer and the employee from agreeing to change the basis of the employee’s employment (as identified in clause 11.5) from time-to-time. Any agreed variation will be recorded in writing.

      (b) This award incorporates the terms of Schedule E to the Miscellaneous Award 2020 as at 1 July 2019. Provided that any reference to “this award”in Schedule E to the Miscellaneous Award 2020 is to be read as referring to the Corrections and Detention (Private Sector) Award 2020 and not the Miscellaneous Award 2020.

[15.3(c) inserted by PR718928 ppc 01Jul20]

16. Payment of wages

NOTE: Regulations 3.33(3) and 3.46(1)(g) of Fair Work Regulations 2009 set out the requirements for pay records and the content of payslips including the requirement to separately identify any allowance paid.

16.1 Wages,allowances,penalty or overtime payments due to an employee must be paid by the employer fortnightly by electronic funds transfer (EFT) to a bank or financial institution account nominated by the employee.

        (ii) all other amounts that are due to the employee under this award and the NES.

      (b) The requirement to pay wages and other amounts under clause 16.3(a) is subject to further order of the Commission and the employer making deductions authorised by this award or the Act.

      NOTE 1: Section 117(2) of the Act provides that an employer must not terminate an employee’s employment unless the employer has given the employee the required minimum period of notice or “has paid”to the employee payment instead of giving notice.

      NOTE 2: Clause 16.3(b) allows the Commission to make an order delaying the requirement to make a payment under clause 16.3.

      NOTE 3: State and Territory long service leave laws or long service leave entitlements under section 113 of the Act,may require an employer to pay an employee for accrued long service leave on the day on which the employee’s employment terminates or shortly after.

[Sched X inserted by PR718141 ppc 08Apr20]

X.1 Subject to clauses X.2.1(d) and X.2.2(c),Schedule X operates from 8 April 2020 until 30 June 2020. The period of operation can be extended on application.

X.2 During the operation of Schedule X,the following provisions apply:

X.2.1 Unpaid pandemic leave

      (a) Subject to clauses X.2.1(b),(c) and (d),any employee is entitled to take up to 2 weeks’unpaid leave if the employee is required by government or medical authorities or on the advice of a medical practitioner to self-isolate and is consequently prevented from working,or is otherwise prevented from working by measures taken by government or medical authorities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

      (b) The employee must give their employer notice of the taking of leave under clause X.2.1(a) and of the reason the employee requires the leave,as soon as practicable (which may be a time after the leave has started).

      (c) An employee who has given their employer notice of taking leave under clause X.2.1(a) must,if required by the employer,give the employer evidence that would satisfy a reasonable person that the leave is taken for a reason given in clause X.2.1(a).

      (d) A period of leave under clause X.2.1(a) must start before 30 June 2020,but may end after that date.

      (e) Leave taken under clause X.2.1(a) does not affect any other paid or unpaid leave entitlement of the employee and counts as service for the purposes of entitlements under this award and the NES.

      NOTE:The employer and employee may agree that the employee may take more than 2 weeks’unpaid pandemic leave.

X.2.2 Annual leave at half pay

      (a) Instead of an employee taking paid annual leave on full pay,the employee and their employer may agree to the employee taking twice as much leave on half pay.

      EXAMPLE:Instead of an employee taking one week’s annual leave on full pay,the employee and their employer may agree to the employee taking 2 weeks’annual leave on half pay. In this example:

      ●the employee’s pay for the 2 weeks’leave is the same as the pay the employee would have been entitled to for one week’s leave on full pay (where one week’s full pay includes leave loading under the Annual Leave clause of this award);and

      ●one week of leave is deducted from the employee’s annual leave accrual.

Under section 342(1) of the Act,an employer takes adverse action against an employee if the employer dismisses the employee,injures the employee in his or her employment,alters the position of the employee to the employee’s prejudice,or discriminates between the employee and other employees of the employer.

NOTE 3:Under section 343(1) of the Act,a person must not organise or take,or threaten to organise or take,action against another person with intent to coerce the person to exercise or not exercise,or propose to exercise or not exercise,a workplace right,or to exercise or propose to exercise a workplace right in a particular way.
