    (ii) for a casual employee,at 187.5% of the ordinary hourly rate for the first 2 hours and 250% of the ordinary hourly rate thereafter.

NOTE: The shift allowances for a casual employee in clause 13.13(b)(ii) have been calculated by adding the casual loading prescribed by clause 11.2 to the ordinary hourly rate before applying the shift allowance for a full-time or part-time employee prescribed by clause 13.13(b)(i).

2. By deleting clause 13.14 and inserting the following:

    (ii) for a casual shiftworker,at 187.5% of the ordinary hourly rate.

(b) The extra rates in clause 13.14(a) are in substitution for and not cumulative upon the shift premiums prescribed in clause 13.13.

NOTE: The penalty rate for a casual employee in clause 13.14(a)(ii) has been calculated by adding the casual loading prescribed by clause 11.2 to the ordinary hourly rate before applying the penalty rate for a full-time or part-time employee prescribed by clause 13.14(a)(i).

3. By deleting clause 13.15(a) and inserting the following:

(a) The rate at which continuous shiftworkers are to be paid for work on a rostered shift,the major portion of which is performed on a Sunday or public holiday,is as follows:

    (i) for full-time and part-time continuous shiftworkers,at 200% of the ordinary hourly rate;and

    (ii) for casual continuous shiftworkers,at 250% of the ordinary hourly rate.

NOTE: The penalty rates for casual employees in clauses 13.15(a)(ii),13.15(b)(ii) and 13.15(b)(iv) have been calculated by adding the casual loading prescribed by clause 11.2 to the ordinary hourly rate before applying the penalty rates for full-time and part-time employees prescribed by clauses 13.15(a)(i),13.15(b)(i) and 13.5(b)(iii),respectively.

6. By deleting clause 13.16 and inserting the following:

13.16 Overtime on shiftwork

(a) Subject to clause 13.16(c),for all time worked in excess of or outside the ordinary hours of work prescribed by this award or on a shift other than a rostered shift,a full-time or part-time shiftworker must be paid:

    (i) if employed on continuous shiftwork—at the rate of 200% of the ordinary hourly rate;or

    (ii) if employed on other than continuous shiftwork—at the rate of 150% of the ordinary hourly rate for the first 2 hours and 200% of the ordinary hourly rate thereafter.

(c) Clauses 13.16(a) and 13.16(b) do not apply where the time is worked:

    (i) by arrangement between the employees themselves;

    (ii) for the purpose of effecting customary rotation on shifts;or

    (iii) on a shift to which an employee is transferred on short notice as an alternative to standing the employee off in circumstances which would entitle the employer to deduct payment for a day in accordance with the Act. Provided that when less than 8 hours’notice has been given to the employer by a relief worker that the relief worker will be absent from work and the employee whom the relief worker should relieve is not relieved and is required to continue to work on the employee’s rostered day off,the unrelieved employee must be paid 200% of the ordinary hourly rate.
