If such discussions do not resolve the dispute,the parties will endeavour to resolve the dispute in a timely manner by discussions between the employee or employees concerned and more senior levels of management as appropriate.

9.2 If a dispute about a matter arising under this award or a dispute in relation to the NES is unable to be resolved at the workplace,and all appropriate steps under clause 9.1 have been taken,a party to the dispute may refer the dispute to the Fair Work Commission.

11. Types of employment

11.1 Full-time

    A full-time employee means a person engaged to work 38 ordinary hours per week.

11.2 Part-time

    (a) The Movement may employ regular part-time employees in any classification.

    (b) A regular part-time employee is an employee who:

      (i) is engaged to work less than full-time hours;and

      (ii) has predictable hours of work;and

      (iii) receives,on a pro rata basis,equivalent pay and conditions to those of full-time employees who do the same work.

    (d) Any agreed variation to the regular pattern of work will be recorded in writing.

11.3 Casual employment

    (a) A casual employee is an employee engaged as such.

    (b) A casual employee must be paid per hour at the rate of 1/38th of the weekly rate prescribed for the class of work performed,plus 25%. This loading is instead of entitlements to leave and other matters from which casuals are excluded by the terms of this award and the NES.

    (c) Casual employees must be paid at the termination of each engagement,or weekly or fortnightly in accordance with usual payment methods for full-time employees.

    (d) Casual employees are entitled to a minimum payment of three hours’work at the appropriate rate.

12. Termination of employment

12.1 Notice of termination is provided for in the NES and is supplemented by this clause.

12.2 Payment instead of the prescribed notice in the NES must be made if the appropriate notice period is not required to be worked. Provided that employment may be terminated by the employee working part of the required period of notice and by the employer making payment for the remainder of the period of notice.

12.3 The required amount of payment instead of notice must equal to or exceed the total of all amounts that,if the employee’s employment had continued until the end of the required period of notice,the employer would have become liable to pay to the employee because of the employment continuing during that period. That total must be calculated on the basis of:

    (a) the employee’s ordinary hours of work (even if not standard hours);and

    (b) the amounts ordinarily payable to the employee in respect of those hours,including (for example) allowances,loading and penalties;and

    (c) any other amounts payable under the employee’s contract of employment.

12.5 Notice of termination by an employee

    The notice of termination required to be given by an employee is the same as that required of an employer except that there is no requirement on the employee to give additional notice based on the age of the employee concerned. 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.

12.6 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.

12.7 Transmission of business

    Where a business is transmitted from one employer to another,as set out in clause 13Redundancy,the period of continuous service that the employee had with the transmittor or any prior transmittor is deemed to be service with the transmittee and taken into account when calculating notice of termination. However,an employee shall not be entitled to notice of termination or payment in lieu of notice for any period of continuous service in respect of which notice has already been given or paid for.

13. Redundancy

13.1 Redundancy pay is provided for in the NES and is supplemented by this clause.

13.2 Definitions

    business includes trade,process,business or occupation and includes part of any such business

    transmission includes transfer,conveyance,assignment or succession whether by agreement or by operation of law and transmitted has a corresponding meaning

    ●fares and travelling time allowances;

    ●bonuses;and

    ●any other ancillary payments of a like nature.

13.3 Transfer to lower paid duties

    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.

13.4 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.

13.5 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 12.6.

13.6 Transmission of business

    (a) The provisions of this clause are not applicable where a business is before or after the date of this award,transmitted from an employer (in this subclause called the transmittor) to another employer (in this subclause called the transmittee),in any of the following circumstances:

      (i) Where the employee accepts employment with the transmittee which recognises the period of continuous service which the employee had with the transmittor and any prior transmittor to be continuous service of the employee with the transmittee;or

      (ii) Where the employee rejects an offer of employment with the transmittee:

        ●in which the terms and conditions are substantially similar and no less favourable,considered on an overall basis,than the terms and conditions applicable to the employee at the time of ceasing employment with the transmittor;and

        ●which recognises the period of continuous service which the employee had with the transmittor and any prior transmittor to be continuous service of the employee with the transmittee.

    (b) The Commission may vary clause 13.6(a)(ii) if it is satisfied that this provision would operate unfairly in a particular case.

13.7 Employees exempted

    Employees exempted from this Redundancy clause are provided for in the NES.

13.8 Incapacity to pay

      (ii) Where the approved training for a part-time traineeship is provided fully off-the-job by a registered training organisation,for example at school or at TAFE,the relevant minimum wage in clauses C.5.2(a)(e) of this schedule applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

      (iii) Where the approved training for a part-time traineeship is undertaken solely on-the-job or partly on-the-job and partly off-the-job,the relevant minimum wage in clauses C.5.2(a)(e) of this schedule minus 20% applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

C.5.3 Other minimum wage provisions

    (a) An employee who was employed by an employer immediately prior to becoming a trainee with that employer must not suffer a reduction in their minimum wage per week or per hour by virtue of becoming a trainee. Casual loadings will be disregarded when determining whether the employee has suffered a reduction in their minimum wage.

    (b) If a qualification is converted from an AQF Certificate Level II to an AQF Certificate Level III traineeship,or from an AQF Certificate Level III to an AQF Certificate Level IV traineeship,then the trainee must be paid the next highest minimum wage provided in this schedule,where a higher minimum wage is provided for the new AQF certificate level.

C.5.4 Default wage rate

    The minimum wage for a trainee undertaking an AQF Certificate Level I–III traineeship whose training package and AQF certificate level are not allocated to a wage level by Appendix C1 is the relevant minimum wage under this schedule for a trainee undertaking an AQF Certificate to Level I–III traineeship whose training package and AQF certificate level are allocated to Wage Level B.

C.6 Employment conditions

C.6.1 A trainee undertaking a school-based traineeship may,with the agreement of the trainee,be paid an additional loading of 25% on all ordinary hours worked instead of paid annual leave,paid personal/carer’s leave and paid absence on public holidays,provided that where the trainee works on a public holiday then the public holiday provisions of this award apply.

C.6.2 A trainee is entitled to be released from work without loss of continuity of employment and to payment of the appropriate wages to attend any training and assessment specified in,or associated with,the training contract.

C.6.3 Time spent by a trainee,other than a trainee undertaking a school-based traineeship,in attending any training and assessment specified in,or associated with,the training contract is to be regarded as time worked for the employer for the purposes of calculating the trainee’s wages and determining the trainee’s employment conditions.

    Note:The time to be included for the purpose of calculating the wages for part-time trainees whose approved training is fully off-the-job is determined by clause C.5.2(f)(ii) and not by this clause.

C.6.4 Subject to clause C.3.5 of this schedule, all other terms and conditions of this award apply to a trainee unless specifically varied by this schedule.
