9. Part-time employees

[Varied by PR733833]

9.1 An employer may employ part-time pilots in any classification in this award.

9.2 A part-time pilot is a pilot who is engaged to perform less than the full-time hours at the workplace on a reasonably predictable basis.

[9.7 deleted by PR733833 from 27Sep21]

10. Casual employees

[Varied by PR718864,PR733833,PR729304]

10.1 Clause 10 does not apply to employees engaged in aerial application operations.

10.2 A casual pilot will be paid per flying hour at the rate of 1/800th of the annual salary prescribed for the class of work performed (including additions to salary).

10.3 A casual pilot will be paid an amount of 25% for each hour in addition to the amount in clause 10.2. 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.

10.4 Casual pilots must be paid at the termination of each engagement but may agree to be paid weekly or fortnightly in accordance with usual payment methods for full-time employees.

10.5 Minimum payments

[10.5 varied by PR718864,PR729304 ppc 01Nov21]

      (a) A casual pilot is entitled to the following minimum payment on each occasion they are required to attend work:

      (i) for a period of duty (including rostered stand-by) of 4 hours or less,a minimum payment of 2 hours;and

      (ii) for a period of duty (including rostered stand-by) exceeding 4 hours,a minimum of 4 hours.

      (b) Where actual flight time exceeds the minimum shift payments detailed in clause 10.5(a),payment is to be calculated for each flying hour or part thereof.

Example –Casual hourly rate for casual airlines/general aviation employees

Emma is a casual pilot paid an hourly rate derived from the minimum salaries in Schedule A of the award. Emma flies a piston engine aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 3810kg on commuter operations and is required to carry out flying using a Command instrument rating.

The annual salary for a full-time pilot under the classification of Captain,Multi engine 3360 kg UTBNI 5660 kg is $56,659.

Emma is entitled to additions to salary under clause A.1.3(a) of $1646.89 per annum and clause A.1.4 of $6587.56.

The formula to calculate her hourly casual rate under clauses 10.2 and 10.3 of the award is:

(Annual salary + annual applicable additions to salary) divided by 800 = hourly rate

Hourly rate x casual loading = casual hourly rate

Calculating Emma’s casual hourly rate:


Step 1:(annual salary + annual applicable additions to salary) = $64,893.45

Step 2:$64,893.45 / 800 = $81.12 per hour (hourly rate)

Step 3:$81.12 x 1.25 = $101.40* per hour (casual hourly rate)

Emma’s casual hourly rate of pay is $101.40* per hour.

*Emma’s actual rate of pay may differ based on other allowances that may be payable under the Air Pilots Award.

10.6 Offers and requests for casual conversion

[10.6 substituted and renamed by PR733833 from 27Sep21]

      Offers and requests for conversion from casual employment to full-time or part-time employment are provided for in the NES.

      (a) Where an employer has given notice of termination to an employee,the employee must be allowed time off without loss of pay of up to one day for the purpose of seeking other employment.

      (b) The time off under clause 33.4 is to be taken at times that are convenient to the employee after consultation with the employer.

33.5 Payments on termination of employment

      (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 33.5(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 33.5(b) allows the Commission to make an order delaying the requirement to make a payment under clause 33.5. For example,the Commission could make an order delaying the requirement to pay redundancy pay if an employer makes an application under section 120 of the Act for the Commission to reduce the amount of redundancy pay an employee is entitled to under the NES.

      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.

33.6 Qualification on termination

      An employee is entitled to be trained or reimbursed the cost of training to maintain the level required at the commencement of employment,this includes a licence/rating required at the time of termination.

33.7 Accrued days off

      Where,at the point of termination,an employee has accrued under clause 33 an entitlement to a day or days off,the employee will receive payment instead of such day or days at the normal rate of salary.

34. Redundancy

NOTE: Redundancy pay is provided for in the NES. See sections 119–123 of the Act.

34.1 Transfer to lower paid duties on redundancy for employees engaged in aerial application operations or helicopter operations

      (a) Clause 34.1 applies to an employee engaged in aerial application operations or helicopter operations who,because of redundancy,is transferred to new duties to which a lower ordinary rate of pay applies.

      (b) The employer may:

      (i) give the employee notice of the transfer of at least the same length as the employee would be entitled to under section 117 of the Act as if it were a notice of termination given by the employer;or

      (ii) transfer the employee to the new duties without giving notice of transfer or before the expiry of a notice of transfer,provided that the employer pays the employee as set out in clause 34.1(c).

      (c) If the employer acts as mentioned in clause 34.1(b)(ii),the employee is entitled to a payment of an amount equal to the difference between the ordinary rate of pay of the employee (inclusive of all-purpose allowances and penalty rates applicable to ordinary hours) for the hours of work the employee would have worked in the first role,and the ordinary rate of pay (also inclusive of all-purpose allowances and penalty rates applicable to ordinary hours) of the employee in the second role for the period for which notice was not given.

34.2 Transfer to lower paid duties on redundancy for all other employees

      (a) Clause 34.2 applies to an employee who is not engaged in aerial application operations or helicopter operations and who,because of redundancy,is transferred to new duties to which a lower ordinary rate of pay applies.

      (b) In clause 34.2 period of notice means the period specified in column 2 of Table 3—Notice of transfer to lower paid duties according to the period of continuous service of the employee specified in column 1.

      Table 3—Notice of transfer to lower paid duties

      Column 1

      Employee’s period of continuous service with the employer at the end of the day the notice is given

      Column 2

      Period of notice

      Not more than 1 year

      3 weeks

      More than 1 year but not more than 3 years

      6 weeks

      More than 3 years

      8 weeks

      (c) In clause 34.2(b) continuous service has the same meaning as in section 117 of the Act.

      (d) The employer may:

      (i) give the employee notice of the transfer of at least the length of the period of notice;or

      (ii) transfer the employee to the new duties without giving notice of transfer,provided that the employer pays the employee as set out in clause 34.2(e).

      (e) If the employer acts as mentioned in clause 34.2(d)(ii),the employee is entitled to be paid at the existing salary rate for the period of notice.

34.3 Employee leaving during redundancy notice period

      (a) An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy may terminate their employment during the minimum period of notice prescribed by section 117(3) of the Act.

      (b) The employee is entitled to receive the benefits and payments they would have received under clause 34 or under sections 119–123 of the Act had they remained in employment until the expiry of the notice.

      (c) However,the employee is not entitled to be paid for any part of the period of notice remaining after the employee ceased to be employed.

34.4 Job search entitlement

      (a) Where an employer has given notice of termination to an employee in circumstances of redundancy,the employee must be allowed time off without loss of pay of up to one day each week of the minimum period of notice prescribed by section 117(3) of the Act for the purpose of seeking other employment.

      (b) If an employee is allowed time off without loss of pay of more than one day under clause 34.4(a),the employee must,at the request of the employer,produce proof of attendance at an interview.

      (c) A statutory declaration is sufficient for the purpose of clause 34.4(b).

      (d) An employee who fails to produce proof when required under clause 34.4(b) is not entitled to be paid for the time off.

      (e) This entitlement applies instead of clause 33.4.

Schedule I—Part-day Public Holidays

I.1 This schedule operates where this award otherwise contains provisions dealing with public holidays that supplement the NES.

I.2 Where a part-day public holiday is declared or prescribed between 6.00 pm and midnight,or 7.00 pm and midnight on Christmas Eve (24 December in each year) or New Year’s Eve (31 December in each year) the following will apply on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve and will override any provision in this award relating to public holidays to the extent of the inconsistency:

      (a) All employees will have the right to refuse to work on the part-day public holiday if the request to work is not reasonable or the refusal is reasonable as provided for in the NES.

      (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 I.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 I.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.

I.3 This schedule is not intended to detract from or supplement the NES.

Schedule X—Additional Measures During the COVID-19 Pandemic

[Varied by PR720629,PR723055]

[X.1 varied by PR720629,PR723055 ppc 30Sep20]

X.1 Subject to clauses X.2.1(d) and X.2.2(c),Schedule X operates from 8 April 2020 until 29 March 2021. 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).

[X.2.1(d) varied by PR720629,PR723055 ppc 30Sep20]

      (d) A period of leave under clause X.2.1(a) must start before 29 March 2021,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.

[X.2.2(c) varied by PR720629,PR723055 ppc 30Sep20]

      (c) A period of leave under clause X.2.2(a) must start before 29 March 2021,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.
