    (d) Where an employee is entitled to the payment of district allowance on the day immediately prior to the commencement of a period of annual leave,the payment of district allowance will continue during the period of annual leave,irrespective of where the employee resides during the leave.

    (e) An employee may,where the employee is in receipt of travelling allowance,be paid district allowance in addition to travelling allowance while temporarily stationed in a locality that would normally attract the payment of district allowance where the Commissioner considers this appropriate.

11.2 Determination of locality

    (a) To determine whether a district allowance is payable in a particular locality (findings should be reviewed every three years),the locality must first fall into one of the following categories according to the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Remoteness Structure. For each category a score has been allocated:

      (i) Outer regional = 2

      (ii) Remote = 7

      (iii) Very remote = 9

    (b) The score assigned to the locality is then further weighted with an additional score based on:

      (i) population (according to Australian Bureau of Statistics Census):

        ●score of 1 if less than 5000 people;

        ●score of 0 if more than 5000;

      (ii) temperature (according to Bureau of Meteorology statistics) –score depending on number of months with a mean maximum monthly temperature above 30 degrees Celsius:

        ●score of 1—for between 6 and 9 months per year with a mean maximum monthly temperature in excess of 30 degrees Celsius;

        ●score of 2—for greater than 9 months per year with a mean maximum monthly temperature in excess of 30 degrees Celsius;

        ●if temperature is over 35 degrees Celsius,a further score is applied as follows:

        - Score of 1—for between 1 and 6 months per year with a mean maximum monthly temperature over 35 degrees Celsius;

        - Score of 2—for between 6 and 9 months per year with a mean maximum monthly temperature over 35 degrees Celsius;

        - Score of 3—for greater than 9 months per year with a mean maximum monthly temperature over 35 degrees Celsius.

      (iii) access to air services:

        ●rating of 0 for locations serviced by major airlines (i.e. Qantas,Virgin);

        ●rating of 0 for locations <50 km from a major airline location;

        ●rating of 1 for locations >50 km or less than 200 km from a major airline location;

        ●rating of 2 for locations serviced by regional airlines;

        ●rating of 2 for locations <50 km from a regional airline location;

        ●rating of 3 for locations >50 km from a regional airline location.

        All scores (i.e. locality,population,temperature and access to air services) are then added to give a total score for the locality. Once the total score is established,the locality will fall into one of the four grades as below:

        ●Grade 1:score between 2–5 points inclusive;

        ●Grade 2:score between 6–9 points inclusive;

        ●Grade 3:score between 10–14 points inclusive;

        ●Grade 4:score greater than 14 points.

    (f) Calculating the actual minimum wage

      (i) Where the full-time ordinary hours of work are not 38 or an average of 38 per week,the appropriate hourly minimum wage is obtained by multiplying the relevant minimum wage in clauses E.5.2(a)(e) of this schedule by 38 and then dividing the figure obtained by the full-time ordinary hours of work per week.

      (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 E.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 E.5.2(a)(e) of this schedule minus 20% applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

E.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.

E.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 clause E.7 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.

E.6 Employment conditions

E.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.

E.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.

E.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.
