20. Payment of wages

NOTE: Regulations 3.33(3) and 3.46(1)(g) of Fair Work Regulations 2009 set out the requirements for pay records and the content of payslips including the requirement to separately identify any allowance paid.

20.1 Except upon the termination of employment all wages including overtime will be paid on any day other than Friday,Saturday or Sunday in each week. However,by agreement between the employer and the majority of employees in the workplace,in a week where a holiday occurs payment of wages may be made on a Friday.

20.2 By agreement between the employer and the employee wages may be paid either weekly or fortnightly by one of the following means:

      (a) cash;

      (b) cheque;or

      (c) payment into employee’s bank account by electronic funds transfer,without cost to the employee.

20.3 An employer may pay an employee weekly by cash without consultation.

20.4 Where an employee is paid by cash or cheque,and the employee is paid their wages at any time other than during their working time,if the employee is kept waiting more than 15 minutes,the employee will be paid overtime rates for all time spent waiting for payment at the workplace.

20.5 Employees whose rostered day off falls on pay day will be paid their wages,if they so desire,before going off duty on the working day prior to their day off. However,this provision will not apply to employees paid by electronic funds transfer.

20.6 Payment on termination of employment

      (a) Subject to clause 20.6(b),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) Where a casual employee is paid at the end of each engagement pursuant to clause 11.4 of this award,and that employee’s employment is terminated,the employer must pay the employee their wages due under the award at the end of their last engagement.

      (c) The requirement to pay wages and other amounts under clause 20.6(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 20.6(c) allows the Commission to make an order delaying the requirement to make a payment under clause 20.6. 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.

      (b) The rights and obligations in these clauses supplement those in superannuation legislation.

21.2 Employer contributions

      An employer must make such superannuation contributions to a superannuation fund for the benefit of an employee as will avoid the employer being required to pay the superannuation guarantee charge under superannuation legislation with respect to that employee.

21.4 Superannuation fund

      Unless,to comply with superannuation legislation,the employer is required to make the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 21.2 to another superannuation fund that is chosen by the employee,the employer must make the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 21.2 and pay the amount authorised under clauses 21.3(a) or 21.3(b) to one of the following superannuation funds or its successor:

      (f) AustralianSuper;

      (g) any superannuation fund to which the employer was making superannuation contributions for the benefit of its employees before 12 September 2008,provided the superannuation fund is an eligible choice fund and is a fund that offers a MySuper product or is an exempt public sector superannuation scheme;or

      (h) a superannuation fund or scheme which the employee is a defined benefit member of.

21.5 Absence from work

      Subject to the governing rules of the relevant superannuation fund,the employer must also make the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 21.2 and pay the amount authorised under clauses 21.3(a) or 21.3(b):

      (a) Paid leave—while the employee is on any paid leave;

      (b) Work-related injury or illness—for the period of absence from work of the employee due to work-related injury or work-related illness provided that:

      NOTE: Clause 10.13(b) specifies when an employer must pay overtime rates to part-time employees and clause 11.5 specifies when an employer must pay overtime rates to casual employees.

22.5 If an employee is so long on overtime duty that the employee has not had 10 hours’rest before the employee’s next regular starting time,the employee will be allowed at least 10 hours’rest without deduction of pay or will be paid at overtime rates for all time of duty until the employee has had at least 8 hours’rest.

22.6 An apprentice under the age of 18 years will not,without the employee’s consent,be required to work overtime,shiftwork or late work.

22.8 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) The period of time off that an employee is entitled to take is equivalent to the overtime payment that would have been made.

      EXAMPLE: By making an agreement under clause 22.8 an employee who worked 2 overtime hours at the rate of 150% is entitled to 3 hours’time off.

      (c) 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.

      (d) If the employee requests at any time,to be paid for overtime covered by an agreement under clause 22.8 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.

      (e) If time off for overtime that has been worked is not taken within the period of 6 months mentioned in clause 22.8(c),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.

      (f) 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.

      (g) 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 22.8 will apply 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).

      (h) If,on the termination of the employee’s employment,time off for overtime worked by the employee to which clause 22.8 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 22.8.

Clause 23.1 applies whether the employee was notified before or after having left the premises.

23.2 Under clause 23.1:

      In simple terms,the Qualifications Framework:

      ●identifies the full range of national qualifications that are available in the hospitality industry;

      ●shows the titles for each of the qualifications;and

      ●sets down the skill requirements for each of the qualifications.

A.13.2 The hospitality training package

      (a) Competency standards

      Competency standards define the skills and knowledge that people need to perform their jobs and the standard of performance that is required.

      Competency standards can be used for:

      ●compiling job descriptions;

      ●organising work structures;

      ●recruitment determining training;

      ●developing training programs needs;

      ●appraisals and/or skills assessment.

      (b) Assessment guidelines

      Assessment guidelines describe the hospitality industry assessment system including the qualifications required by assessors and other quality assurance mechanisms.

      The focus of assessment is on whether a person has the skills,not on how they acquired them. People undertaking training may be assessed on or off the job. In the workplace,people who already have the skills may also be assessed.

      (c) Qualifications framework

      When individuals have been assessed,whether in the workplace or as part of their training;they are able to receive formal recognition of their skills.

      The Qualifications Framework defines all the different hospitality qualifications. There are 6 levels of qualification:

Schedule D—School-based Apprentices

D.1 This schedule applies to school-based apprentices. A school-based apprentice is a person who is undertaking an apprenticeship in accordance with this schedule while also undertaking a course of secondary education.

D.2 A school-based apprenticeship may be undertaken in the trades covered by this award under a training agreement or contract of training for an apprentice declared or recognised by the relevant State or Territory authority.

D.3 The relevant minimum wages for full-time junior and adult apprentices provided for in this award,calculated hourly,will apply to school-based apprentices for total hours worked including time deemed to be spent in off-the-job training.

D.4 For the purposes of clause D.3,where an apprentice is a full-time school student,the time spent in off-the-job training for which the apprentice must be paid is 25% of the actual hours worked each week on-the-job. The wages paid for training time may be averaged over the semester or year.

D.5 A school-based apprentice must be allowed,over the duration of the apprenticeship,the same amount of time to attend off-the-job training as an equivalent full-time apprentice.

D.6 For the purposes of this schedule,off-the-job training is structured training delivered by a Registered Training Organisation separate from normal work duties or general supervised practice undertaken on the job.

D.7 The duration of the apprenticeship must be as specified in the training agreement or contract for each apprentice but must not exceed 6 years.

D.8 School-based apprentices progress through the relevant wage scale at the rate of 12 months progression for each 2 years of employment as an apprentice or at the rate of competency based progression if provided for in this award.

D.9 The apprentice wage scales are based on a standard full-time apprenticeship of 4 years (unless the apprenticeship is of 3 years’duration) or stages of competency based progression (if provided for in this award). The rate of progression reflects the average rate of skill acquisition expected from the typical combination of work and training for a school-based apprentice undertaking the applicable apprenticeship.

D.10 If an apprentice converts from school-based to full-time,the successful completion of competencies (if provided for in this award) and all time spent as a full-time apprentice will count for the purposes of progression through the relevant wage scale in addition to the progression achieved as a school-based apprentice.

D.11 School-based apprentices are entitled pro rata to all of the other conditions in this award.

      (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 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 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).

      (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.

      (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.
