      (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 11.5(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 11.5,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 11.5.

      (o) Nothing in clause 11.5 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 11.5 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 clause 11.5 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 clause 11.5 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 11.5(q).

      (a) The employer must pay an employee no later than 7 days after the day on which the employee’s employment terminates:

      (i) the employee’s wages under this award for any complete or incomplete pay period up to the end of the day of termination;and

      (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 16.5(a) is subject to further order of the Commission and the employer making deductions authorised by this award or the Act.

19.2 Overtime as defined in clause 19.1 must be paid for at 150% of the minimum hourly rate for the first 3 hours and 200% of the minimum hourly rate after 3 hours.

19.3 Time off instead of payment for overtime

      (a) An employee and employer may agree in writing to the employee taking time off instead of being paid for a particular amount of overtime that has been worked by the employee.

      (b) Any amount of overtime that has been worked by an employee in a particular pay period and that is to be taken as time off instead of the employee being paid for it must be the subject of a separate agreement under clause 19.3.

      (c) An agreement must state each of the following:

      (i) the number of overtime hours to which it applies and when those hours were worked;

      (ii) that the employer and employee agree that the employee may take time off instead of being paid for the overtime;

      (iii) that,if the employee requests at any time,the employer must pay the employee,for overtime covered by the agreement but not taken as time off,at the overtime rate applicable to the overtime when worked;

      (iv) that any payment mentioned in subparagraph 19.3(c)(iii) must be made in the next pay period following the request.

      NOTE: An example of the type of agreement required by clause 19.3 is set out at Schedule E—Agreement for Time Off Instead of Payment for Overtime. There is no requirement to use the form of agreement set out at Schedule E—Agreement for Time Off Instead of Payment for Overtime. An agreement under clause 19.3 can also be made by an exchange of emails between the employee and employer,or by other electronic means.

      (d) The period of time off that an employee is entitled to take is the same as the number of overtime hours worked.

      EXAMPLE:By making an agreement under clause 19.3 an employee who worked 2 overtime hours is entitled to 2 hours’time off.

      (e) Time off must be taken:

      (i) within the period of 6 months after the overtime is worked;and

      (ii) at a time or times within that period of 6 months agreed by the employee and employer.

      (f) If the employee requests at any time,to be paid for overtime covered by an agreement under clause 19.3 but not taken as time off,the employer must pay the employee for the overtime,in the next pay period following the request,at the overtime rate applicable to the overtime when worked.

      (g) If time off for overtime that has been worked is not taken within the period of 6 months mentioned in clause 19.3(e),the employer must pay the employee for the overtime,in the next pay period following those 6 months,at the overtime rate applicable to the overtime when worked.

      (h) The employer must keep a copy of any agreement under clause 19.3 as an employee record.

      (i) An employer must not exert undue influence or undue pressure on an employee in relation to a decision by the employee to make,or not make,an agreement to take time off instead of payment for overtime.

      (j) An employee may,under section 65 of the Act,request to take time off,at a time or times specified in the request or to be subsequently agreed by the employer and the employee,instead of being paid for overtime worked by the employee. If the employer agrees to the request then clause 19.3 will apply,including the requirement for separate written agreements under clause 19.3(b) for overtime that has been worked.

      NOTE: If an employee makes a request under section 65 of the Act for a change in working arrangements,the employer may only refuse that request on reasonable business grounds (see section 65(5) of the Act).

      (k) If,on the termination of the employee’s employment,time off for overtime worked by the employee to which clause 19.3 applies has not been taken,the employer must pay the employee for the overtime at the overtime rate applicable to the overtime when worked.

      NOTE: Under section 345(1) of the Act,a person must not knowingly or recklessly make a false or misleading representation about the workplace rights of another person under clause 19.3.

      (c) A notice given by an employee under clause 21.7(a) must not:

      (i) if granted,result in the employee’s remaining accrued entitlement to paid annual leave being at any time less than 6 weeks when any other paid annual leave arrangements (whether made under clause 21.5,21.6 or 21.7 or otherwise agreed by the employer and employee) are taken into account;or

      (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 H.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 H.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.

H.3 An employer and employee may agree to substitute another part-day for a part-day that would otherwise be a part-day public holiday under the NES.

H.4 This schedule is not intended to detract from or supplement the NES.

Schedule X—Additional Measures During the COVID-19 Pandemic

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.

      (b) Any agreement to take twice as much annual leave at half pay must be recorded in writing and retained as an employee record.

      (c) A period of leave under clause X.2.2(a) must start before 30 June 2020,but may end after that date.

      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.

NOTE 1:A employee covered by this award who is entitled to the benefit of clause X.2.1 or X.2.2 has a workplace right under section 341(1)(a) of the Act.

NOTE 2:Under section 340(1) of the Act,an employer must not take adverse action against an employee because the employee has a workplace right,has or has not exercised a workplace right,or proposes or does not propose to exercise a workplace right,or to prevent the employee exercising a workplace right. 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.
