Title

This award is the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services Award 2010.

Commencement and transitional

This award commences on 1 January 2010.

The monetary obligations imposed on employers by this award may be absorbed into overaward payments. Nothing in this award requires an employer to maintain or increase any overaward payment.

This award contains transitional arrangements which specify when particular parts of the award come into effect. Some of the transitional arrangements are in clauses in the main part of the award. There are also transitional arrangements in Schedule A. The arrangements in Schedule A deal with:

minimum wages and piecework rates

casual or part-time loadings

Saturday, Sunday, public holiday, evening or other penalties

shift allowances/penalties.

Neither the making of this award nor the operation of any transitional arrangements is intended to result in a reduction in the take-home pay of employees covered by the award. On application by or on behalf of an employee who suffers a reduction in take-home pay as a result of the making of this award or the operation of any transitional arrangements, Fair Work Australia may make any order it considers appropriate to remedy the situation.

Fair Work Australia may review the transitional arrangements in this award and make a determination varying the award.

Fair Work Australia may review the transitional arrangements:

on its own initiative; or

on application by an employer, employee, organisation or outworker entity covered by the modern award; or

on application by an organisation that is entitled to represent the industrial interests of one or more employers or employees that are covered by the modern award; or

in relation to outworker arrangements, on application by an organisation that is entitled to represent the industrial interests of one or more outworkers to whom the arrangements relate.

Definitions and interpretation

In this award, unless the contrary intention appears:

Aboriginal community controlled health services are incorporated Aboriginal organisations, initiated and based in an Aboriginal community. They are governed by a representative Aboriginal Board of Management which is elected by the local Aboriginal community. They deliver holistic and culturally appropriate health and well-being services to the Aboriginal community which controls them.

Aboriginal health worker includes a person who is registered with a national, State or Territory registration body, where registration is required in the State or Territory where the person is employed

NOTE: Registration as an Aboriginal health worker is required in one or more States or Territories. Where registration is required, an employee employed in the relevant State or Territory will not be employed as an Aboriginal health worker unless they are registered with the relevant State or Territory registration body. It is intended that a national registration system will be implemented and variations to the definition of Aboriginal health worker will be sought once that registration system is established.

Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills — level 1 means:

an understanding, awareness and sensitivity to Aboriginal culture and lore, kinship and skin relationships, local cultural values, the ability to conduct oneself in a culturally appropriate manner and an understanding that Aboriginal culture is not homogenous throughout Australia;

where relevant, a knowledge of one or more relevant Australian Aboriginal language groups;

an ability to deliver or assist in the delivery of effective and appropriate services to an Aboriginal clientele through knowledge of the relevant Australian Aboriginal community, the ability to effectively communicate with Aboriginal people, and a knowledge of cultural conventions and appropriate behaviour;

an awareness of the history and role of Aboriginal organisations in the relevant region, an understanding of the organisations and their goals and the environment in which the organisations operate;

the ability to function effectively at work in an Aboriginal organisation; and

an understanding and/or awareness of the concepts of Aboriginal self-determination and Aboriginal identity

Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills — level 2 means Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills — level 1 plus a thorough knowledge of the history and role of Aboriginal organisations in the region, including an understanding of the organisations and their goals and knowledge of the political and economic environment in which the organisations operate

Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills — level 3 means Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills levels 1 and 2, plus an understanding, awareness and/or sensitivity to local, national and international cultural values and a clear understanding of Aboriginal organisations, their establishment and goals, and the political and economic environment in which the organisations operate at a local, national and international level

Coverage

This industry award covers employers throughout Australia in the Aboriginal community controlled health services industry and their employees in the classifications listed in clause 14 — Minimum wages to the exclusion of any other modern award.

The award does not cover an employee excluded from award coverage by the Act.

The award does not cover employees who are covered by a modern enterprise award, or an enterprise instrument (within the meaning of the Fair Work (Transitional Provisions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009 (Cth)), or employers in relation to those employees.

The award does not cover employees who are covered by a State reference public sector modern award, or a State reference public sector transitional award (within the meaning of the Fair Work (Transitional Provisions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009 (Cth)), or employers in relation to those employees.

This award covers any employer which supplies labour on an on-hire basis in the industry set out in clause 4.1 in respect of on-hire employees in classifications covered by this award, and those on-hire employees, while engaged in the performance of work for a business in that industry. This subclause operates subject to the exclusions from coverage in this award.

This award covers employers which provide group training services for trainees engaged in the industry and/or parts of industry set out at clause 4.1 and those trainees engaged by a group training service hosted by a company to perform work at a location where the activities described herein are being performed. This subclause operates subject to the exclusions from coverage in this award.

Where an employer is covered by more than one award, an employee of that employer is covered by the award classification which is most appropriate to the work performed by the employee and to the environment in which the employee normally performs the work.

NOTE: Where there is no classification for a particular employee in this award it is possible that the employer and that employee are covered by an award with occupational coverage.

Access to the award and the National Employment Standards

The employer must ensure that copies of this award and the NES are available to all employees to whom they apply either on a noticeboard which is conveniently located at or near the workplace or through electronic means, whichever makes them more accessible.

The National Employment Standards and this award

The NES <http://www.airc.gov.au/awardmod/download/nes.pdf> and this award contain the minimum conditions of employment for employees covered by this award.

Award flexibility

Notwithstanding any other provision of this award, an employer and an individual employee may agree to vary the application of certain terms of this award to meet the genuine individual needs of the employer and the individual employee. The terms the employer and the individual employee may agree to vary the application of are those concerning:

arrangements for when work is performed;

overtime rates;

penalty rates;

allowances; and

leave loading.

The employer and the individual employee must have genuinely made the agreement without coercion or duress.

The agreement between the employer and the individual employee must:

be confined to a variation in the application of one or more of the terms listed in clause 7.1; and

result in the employee being better off overall than the employee would have been if no individual flexibility agreement had been agreed to.

The agreement between the employer and the individual employee must also:

be in writing, name the parties to the agreement and be signed by the employer and the individual employee and, if the employee is under 18 years of age, the employee’s parent or guardian;

state each term of this award that the employer and the individual employee have agreed to vary;

detail how the application of each term has been varied by agreement between the employer and the individual employee;

detail how the agreement results in the individual employee being better off overall in relation to the individual employee’s terms and conditions of employment; and

state the date the agreement commences to operate.

The employer must give the individual employee a copy of the agreement and keep the agreement as a time and wages record.

Except as provided in clause 7.4(a) the agreement must not require the approval or consent of a person other than the employer and the individual employee.

An employer seeking to enter into an agreement must provide a written proposal to the employee. Where the employee’s understanding of written English is limited the employer must take measures, including translation into an appropriate language, to ensure the employee understands the proposal.

The agreement may be terminated:

by the employer or the individual employee giving four weeks’ notice of termination, in writing, to the other party and the agreement ceasing to operate at the end of the notice period; or

at any time, by written agreement between the employer and the individual employee.

The right to make an agreement pursuant to this clause is in addition to, and is not intended to otherwise affect, any provision for an agreement between an employer and an individual employee contained in any other term of this award.

Part 2 — Consultation and Dispute Resolution

Consultation regarding major workplace change

Employer to notify

Where an employer has made a definite decision to introduce major changes in production, program, organisation, structure or technology that are likely to have significant effects on employees, the employer must notify the employees who may be affected by the proposed changes and their representatives, if any.

Significant effects include termination of employment; major changes in the composition, operation or size of the employer’s workforce or in the skills required; the elimination or diminution of job opportunities, promotion opportunities or job tenure; the alteration of hours of work; the need for retraining or transfer of employees to other work or locations; and the restructuring of jobs. Provided that where this award makes provision for alteration of any of these matters an alteration is deemed not to have significant effect.

Employer to discuss change

The employer must discuss with the employees affected and their representatives, if any, the introduction of the changes referred to in clause 8.1, the effects the changes are likely to have on employees and measures to avert or mitigate the adverse effects of such changes on employees and must give prompt consideration to matters raised by the employees and/or their representatives in relation to the changes.

The discussions must commence as early as practicable after a definite decision has been made by the employer to make the changes referred to in clause 8.1.

For the purposes of such discussion, the employer must provide in writing to the employees concerned and their representatives, if any, all relevant information about the changes including the nature of the changes proposed, the expected effects of the changes on employees and any other matters likely to affect employees provided that no employer is required to disclose confidential information the disclosure of which would be contrary to the employer’s interests.

Dispute resolution

In the event of a dispute about a matter under this award, or a dispute in relation to the NES, in the first instance the parties must attempt to resolve the matter at the workplace by discussions between the employee or employees concerned and the relevant supervisor. If such discussions do not resolve the dispute, the parties will endeavour to resolve the dispute in a timely manner by discussions between the employee or employees concerned and more senior levels of management as appropriate, which may include the Board of Management.

If a dispute about a matter arising under this award or a dispute in relation to the NES is unable to be resolved at the workplace, and all appropriate steps under clause 9.1 have been taken, a party to the dispute may refer the dispute to Fair Work Australia.

The parties may agree on the process to be utilised by Fair Work Australia including mediation, conciliation and consent arbitration.

Where the matter in dispute remains unresolved, Fair Work Australia may exercise any method of dispute resolution permitted by the Act that it considers appropriate to ensure the settlement of the dispute.

An employer or employee may appoint another person, organisation or association to accompany and/or represent them for the purposes of this clause.

While the dispute resolution procedure is being conducted, work must continue in accordance with this award and the Act. Subject to applicable occupational health and safety legislation, an employee must not unreasonably fail to comply with a direction by the employer to perform work, whether at the same or another workplace, that is safe and appropriate for the employee to perform.

Part 3 — Types of Employment and Termination of Employment

Types of employment

Employment categories

Employees under this award will be employed in one of the following categories:

full-time;

part-time; or

casual.

At the time of engagement an employer will inform each employee in writing whether they are employed on a full-time, part-time or casual basis. An employer may direct an employee to carry out such duties that are within the limits of the employee’s skill, competence and training, consistent with the respective classification of that employee.

Full-time employment

A full-time employee is one who is engaged to work 38 hours per week or an average of 38 hours per week pursuant to clause 20 — Ordinary hours of work and rostering of this award.

Part-time employment

A part-time employee is an employee who:

is engaged to work less than the full-time hours of an average of 38 hours per week;

has reasonably predictable hours of work; and

receives, on a pro rata basis, equivalent pay and conditions to those of full-time employees who do the same kind of work.

Before commencing employment, the employer and employee will agree in writing on a regular pattern of work including the number of hours to be worked each week, the days of the week the employee will work and the starting and finishing times each day.

The terms of the agreement may be varied by agreement and recorded in writing.

A part-time employee will be rostered for a minimum of four consecutive hours on any shift.

All time worked in excess of the hours as mutually arranged or varied will be overtime and paid for at the rates prescribed in clause 24 — Overtime and penalty rates of this award.

Casual employment

A casual employee is an employee engaged as such on an hourly basis.

A casual employee will be paid per hour an amount calculated at the rate of 1/38th of the weekly rate appropriate to the employee’s classification, plus a casual loading of 25% instead of the paid leave entitlements of full-time and part-time employees.

The minimum period of engagement of a casual employee is three hours.

Casual employees who are required to work on public holidays will, instead of the casual loading, be paid an additional 50% for such work.

Termination of employment

Notice of termination is provided for in the NES.

Notice of termination by an employee

The notice of termination required to be given by an employee is the same as that required of an employer except that there is no requirement on the employee to give additional notice based on the age of the employee concerned. If an employee fails to give the required notice the employer may withhold from any monies due to the employee on termination under this award or the NES, an amount not exceeding the amount the employee would have been paid under this award in respect of the period of notice required by this clause less any period of notice actually given by the employee.

Job search entitlement

Where an employer has given notice of termination to an employee, an employee must be allowed up to one day’s time off without loss of pay for the purpose of seeking other employment. The time off is to be taken at times that are convenient to the employee after consultation with the employer.

Redundancy

Redundancy pay is provided for in the NES.

Transfer to lower paid duties

Where an employee is transferred to lower paid duties by reason of redundancy, the same period of notice must be given as the employee would have been entitled to if the employment had been terminated and the employer may, at the employer’s option, make payment instead of an amount equal to the difference between the former ordinary time rate of pay and the ordinary time rate of pay for the number of weeks of notice still owing.

Employee leaving during notice period

An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy may terminate their employment during the period of notice. The employee is entitled to receive the benefits and payments they would have received under this clause had they remained in employment until the expiry of the notice, but is not entitled to payment instead of notice.

Job search entitlement

An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy must be allowed up to one day’s time off without loss of pay during each week of notice for the purpose of seeking other employment.

If the employee has been allowed paid leave for more than one day during the notice period for the purpose of seeking other employment, the employee must, at the request of the employer, produce proof of attendance at an interview or they will not be entitled to payment for the time absent. For this purpose a statutory declaration is sufficient.

This entitlement applies instead of clause 11.3.

Transitional provisions

Subject to clause 12.5(b), an employee whose employment is terminated by an employer is entitled to redundancy pay in accordance with the terms of a notional agreement preserving a State award:

that would have applied to the employee immediately prior to 1 January 2010, if the employee had at that time been in their current circumstances of employment and no agreement-based transitional instrument or enterprise agreement had applied to the employee; and

that would have entitled the employee to redundancy pay in excess of the employee’s entitlement to redundancy pay, if any, under the NES.

The employee’s entitlement to redundancy pay under the notional agreement preserving a State award is limited to the amount of redundancy pay which exceeds the employee’s entitlement to redundancy pay, if any, under the NES.

This clause does not operate to diminish an employee’s entitlement to redundancy pay under any other instrument.

Clause 12.5 ceases to operate on 31 December 2014.

Allowances

Bilingual qualification allowance

Bilingual means a recognised proficiency in English as well as any one of the languages normally used by the employer’s customers/clients.

In recognition of the increased effectiveness and productivity of bilingual employees, an employee who is competently bilingual and who is regularly required in the course of their duties to use one or more of these languages will be paid an annual allowance of:


% of standard rate
Level 1
206.93
Level 2
414.18

Level 1 is an elementary level. This level of accreditation is appropriate for employees who are capable of using a minimal knowledge of language for the purpose of simple communication.

Level 2 represents a level of ability for the ordinary purposes of general business, conversation, reading and writing.

Proof of bilingual proficiency and accreditation will be obtained before an employee will be entitled to this allowance. Bilingual accreditation is obtained by the employee confirming their bilingual proficiency in writing from an interpreting and/or translating service agreed by the employer and the employee.

Higher duties

An employee engaged for one day or more during any pay period on duties carrying a higher rate than their ordinary classification will be paid an allowance equal to the amount of the difference between their own ordinary rate of pay and the minimum ordinary rate of pay at the higher designation.

Clothing allowance

Where the employer requires an employee to wear any special clothing such as a uniform, overalls or suitable industrial clothing, safety boots or shoes, the employer must reimburse the employee the cost of purchasing a reasonable number of such special clothing. The provisions of this clause do not apply where the special clothing is provided by the employer.

All special clothing so provided will remain the property of the employer. Reasonable laundering and maintenance of such items will be reimbursed to the employee unless provided free of cost to the employee.

Instead of providing such special clothing the employer may, by agreement with the employee, pay such employee a uniform allowance at the rate of $1.20 per day or part thereof on duty or $5.92 per week whichever is the lesser amount.

Where employees’ uniforms are not laundered by or at the expense of the employer, the employee will be paid a laundry allowance of $0.26 per day or part thereof on duty or $1.29 per week, whichever is the lesser amount.

The uniform allowance but not the laundry allowance will be paid during all absences on leave, except absences on long service leave and absences on personal/carer’s leave beyond 21 days. Where, prior to the taking of leave, an employee was paid a uniform allowance other than at the weekly rate, the rate to be paid during absence on leave will be an average of the allowance paid during the four weeks immediately preceding the taking of leave.

On call and recall allowances

Where an employee is required, and rostered by the employer to remain on call and in readiness to be recalled to work after ordinary working hours, the employee will be paid an on call allowance of 1.97% of the standard rate in respect of any 24 hour period or part thereof during which the employee is on call during an off duty period.

The on call allowance will be 3.94% of the standard rate in respect of any 24 hour period or part thereof on any public holiday or part thereof.

In the event of an employee who is on call being recalled for duty for any period during an off duty period, the employee will be paid from the time of receiving recall until the time of finishing such recall duty, with a minimum of one hour’s payment for such recall at the following rates:

within a spread of 12 hours from the commencement of the last period of ordinary duty — time and a half;

outside a spread of 12 hours from the commencement of the last period of ordinary duty — double time; or

on days observed as public holidays — double time.

Provided that if the employee is recalled and does not have an uninterrupted break of six hours between midnight and the time of commencement of the next period of ordinary duty the employee will be entitled to time off of six hours from the time of finishing the last recall to the time of commencing the next period of duty without loss of pay.

Travelling, transport and fares

An employee required and authorised to use their own motor vehicle in the course of their duties will be paid an allowance of not less than $0.74 per kilometre.

When an employee is involved in travelling on duty, all reasonably incurred expenses with respect to fares, meals and accommodation will be met by the employer on production of receipted account(s) or other evidence acceptable to the employer. The employee and employer must agree prior to travel commencing as to the standard of travel, accommodation and meals to be paid before any allowance is paid.

The employee will not be entitled to reimbursement for expenses referred to in clause 15.5(b) which exceed the mode of transport, meals or the standard of accommodation agreed with the employer, for these purposes.

Where an employee is required to work at a place away from their normal place of work, all time reasonably spent travelling to and from the place of work will be credited at their ordinary rate of pay.

Meal allowance

An employee will be supplied with an adequate meal where an employer has adequate cooking and dining facilities or be paid a meal allowance of $10.00 in addition to any overtime payment as follows:

when required to work after the usual finishing hour of work beyond one hour or, in the case of shiftworkers, when the overtime work on any shift exceeds one hour;

provided that where such overtime work exceeds four hours a further meal allowance of $9.00 will be paid.

Clause 15.6(a) will not apply when an employee could reasonably return home for a meal within the meal break.

On request, the meal allowance will be paid on the same day as the overtime is worked.

Adjustment of expense related allowances

At the time of any adjustment to the standard rate, each expense related allowance will be increased by the relevant adjustment factor. The relevant adjustment factor for this purpose is the percentage movement in the applicable index figure most recently published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics since the allowance was last adjusted.

The applicable index figure is the index figure published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics for the Eight Capitals Consumer Price Index (Cat No. 6401.0), as follows:

Allowance
Applicable Consumer Price Index figure
Uniform/laundry allowances
Clothing and footwear group
Meal allowance
Take-away and fast foods sub-group
Vehicle allowance
Private motoring sub-group

that would have entitled the employee to accident pay in excess of the employee’s entitlement to accident pay, if any, under any other instrument.

The employee’s entitlement to accident pay under the notional agreement preserving a State award or the award is limited to the amount of accident pay which exceeds the employee’s entitlement to accident pay, if any, under any other instrument.

This clause does not operate to diminish an employee’s entitlement to accident pay under any other instrument.

This clause ceases to operate on 31 December 2014.

Superannuation legislation, including the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (Cth), the Superannuation Guarantee Charge Act 1992 (Cth), the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (Cth) and the Superannuation (Resolution of Complaints) Act 1993 (Cth), deals with the superannuation rights and obligations of employers and employees. Under superannuation legislation individual employees generally have the opportunity to choose their own superannuation fund. If an employee does not choose a superannuation fund, any superannuation fund nominated in the award covering the employee applies.

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

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.

Voluntary employee contributions

Subject to the governing rules of the relevant superannuation fund, an employee may, in writing, authorise their employer to pay on behalf of the employee a specified amount from the post-taxation wages of the employee into the same superannuation fund as the employer makes the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 19.2.

An employee may adjust the amount the employee has authorised their employer to pay from the wages of the employee from the first of the month following the giving of three months’ written notice to their employer.

The employer must pay the amount authorised under clauses 19.3(a) or (b) no later than 28 days after the end of the month in which the deduction authorised under clauses 19.3(a) or (b) was made.

Superannuation fund

Unless, to comply with superannuation legislation, the employer is required to make the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 19.2 to another superannuation fund that is chosen by the employee, the employer must make the superannuation contributions provided for in clause 19.2 and pay the amount authorised under clauses 19.3(a) or (b) to one of the following superannuation funds or its successor:

AustralianSuper; or

HESTA Super; or

Westscheme; or

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.

Part 5 — Hours of Work and Related Matters

Ordinary hours of work and rostering

The ordinary hours of work for a full-time employee will be an average of 38 hours per week over a fortnight.

Not more than 10 ordinary hours of work (exclusive of meal breaks) are to be worked in any one day.

Span of hours

Unless otherwise stated, the ordinary hours of work for an employee will be worked between 7.00 am and 7.00 pm Monday to Friday.

Ordinary hours of work for shiftworkers will be worked on the days from Monday to Sunday inclusive.

Rosters

The starting and ceasing time for each day will not be changed upon less than seven working days’ notice unless necessary because of the absence from duty of other employees or a shortage of staff or with the consent of the employee.

The period of notice for casual employees of a change in starting and ceasing time for each day will be not less than 24 hours.

Meal breaks

An employee who works in excess of five hours will be entitled to an unpaid meal break of not less than 30 minutes and not more than 60 minutes.

The time of taking the meal break may be varied by agreement between the employer and employee.

Overtime and penalty rates

Overtime rates

The following overtime rates will be paid for all work done:

in excess of the number of hours fixed as a day’s, a week’s or a fortnight’s work as the case may be — time and a half for the first two hours and double time thereafter;

outside the span of hours in clause 21.1 — time and a half for the first two hours and double time thereafter;

outside a spread of nine hours from the time of commencing work by an employee rostered to work broken shifts — time and a half; and

outside a spread of 12 hours from the time of commencing work by an employee rostered to work broken shifts — double time.

Any period of overtime involving a recall to duty during an off duty period and which is not continuous with the next succeeding rostered period of duty will be paid at a minimum of three hours at the appropriate overtime rate.

An employee required to work overtime on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, will be afforded at least four hours’ work or paid for four hours’ work at the appropriate rate, except where such overtime is continuous with overtime commenced on the previous day.

These extra rates will be in substitution for and not cumulative upon the shift loading prescribed in clause 25 — Shiftwork.

Rest period after overtime

An employee who works so much overtime between the termination of their ordinary work on one day and the commencement of ordinary work on the next day that they have not had at least 10 consecutive hours off duty will be released after completion of such overtime until they have had 10 consecutive hours off duty without loss of pay for ordinary working time occurring during this absence.

If, on the instructions of the employer, the employee resumes or continues work without having had 10 hours off duty, the employee will be paid at the rate of double time until they are released from duty for such a period. The employee is then entitled to be absent until they have had 10 consecutive hours off duty without loss of pay for ordinary working time occurring during such absence.

Time off instead of payment for overtime

An employee may elect, with the consent of the employer, to take time off instead of payment for overtime at a time agreed with the employer.

Overtime taken as time off during ordinary hours will be taken at the ordinary time rate, that is, an hour for each hour worked.

Recall to work overtime

An employee who is recalled to work overtime during an off duty period and which is not continuous with the next succeeding rostered period of duty will be paid for a minimum of three hours’ work at the appropriate overtime rate.

Clause 24.8 will not apply:

in cases where it is customary for an employee to return to the employer’s premises for periods not exceeding 30 minutes each to perform a specific job outside their ordinary working hours in which case the employee will be paid for a minimum of one hour’s work at the appropriate rate for each time the employee is so recalled; or

where the overtime is continuous (subject to a reasonable meal break) with the commencement of ordinary working time.

In the event of an employee finishing any period of overtime at a time when reasonable means of transport are not available for the employee to return to their place of residence, the employer will provide adequate transport free of cost to the employee.

Shiftwork

Where the ordinary rostered hours of work of an employee finish between 7.00 pm and 7.00 am or commence between 7.00 pm and 7.00 am, the employee will be paid an additional loading of 15% of their ordinary rate of pay.

Where a shiftworker is required to work ordinary hours continuously for a period exceeding four weeks on a shift wholly within the hours of 7.00 pm and 7.00 am the employee will be paid with respect to that shift an additional 30% of the employee’s ordinary rate of pay for that shift.

A shiftworker will be paid the rate of 50% additional to the ordinary rate of pay for all rostered time of ordinary duty performed on a Saturday.

A shiftworker will be paid at the rate of 100% additional to the ordinary rate of pay for all rostered time of ordinary duty performed on a Sunday.

Ordinary rate will not include any percentage addition by reason of the fact that an employee is a casual employee. That is the shift penalty is calculated upon the ordinary rate, prior to the addition of the 25% casual loading.

The whole of a shift will be deemed to be worked on the day on which the shift commenced.

Part 6 — Leave and Public Holidays

Annual leave loading

In addition to their ordinary pay, an employee, other than a shiftworker, will be paid an annual leave loading of 17.5% of their ordinary rate of pay.

Time of taking leave

An employer may require an employee to take annual leave by giving at least four weeks’ notice in the following circumstances:

as part of a close-down of its operations; or

Payment for working on a public holiday

Any employee required to work on a public holiday will be compensated as follows:

With professional development, it is expected that new techniques and methods will be learnt and applied to progressively more difficult problems.

Initially work is subject to professional supervision. As experience is gained, the contribution and the level of professional judgment increases and professional supervision decreases, until a wide range of professional tasks is capable of being performed with little technical direction.

When experienced, advice and guidance may be provided to less experienced professional staff. They are not required to provide general professional guidance but may be required to provide general supervision of and/or train technical and other non-professional staff.

Staff may be required to develop and apply advanced techniques learnt during the undergraduate course or later; however, decisions to incorporate such new techniques into normal procedures would be taken at a higher level.

It is desirable that staff at this grade have Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills — level 1.

Dental Therapist Grade 2 works as a professional practitioner, performs normal professional work under general professional guidance, and may perform novel, complex or critical professional work under professional supervision.

Staff at this grade perform normal professional work of an organisational unit, or of a specialised professional field encompassed by the work of the unit, and accept technical responsibility for those tasks.

Staff may also be expected to perform difficult or novel, complex or critical professional work where they are isolated from immediate professional supervision, for example, because of remoteness of the functional work area. Staff at this grade are expected to exercise independent professional judgment when required, particularly in recognising and solving problems and managing cases where principles, procedures, techniques and methods require expansion, adaption or modification.

Staff may carry out research under professional supervision and may be expected to contribute to advances in the techniques used.

Work at this grade may include professional supervision of Dental Therapists Grade 1 together with general supervision over technical and other personnel. Dental Therapists at this level may also be required to guide Dental Therapists Grade 1 in the methods to be used, policies to be followed and standards to be observed with respect to the professional work performed by the organisational unit.

Staff may provide an advisory role up to the level of expertise.

Staff are required to understand industry problems if advice on interpretation of regulations or standards is required and to undertake associated liaison tasks.

It is desirable that staff at this grade have Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills — level 1.

Ancillary

It is desirable that all ancillary staff have Aboriginal knowledge and cultural skills — level 1.

Cleaner means a person who performs tasks customarily performed by cleaners utilising a range of materials and equipment to clean a range of surfaces in order to restore or maintain buildings in a clean and hygienic condition.

This schedule defines the conditions which will apply to employees who because of the effects of a disability are eligible for a supported wage under the terms of this award.

In this schedule:

approved assessor means a person accredited by the management unit established by the Commonwealth under the supported wage system to perform assessments of an individual’s productive capacity within the supported wage system

assessment instrument means the tool provided for under the supported wage system that records the assessment of the productive capacity of the person to be employed under the supported wage system

disability support pension means the Commonwealth pension scheme to provide income security for persons with a disability as provided under the Social Security Act 1991 (Cth), as amended from time to time, or any successor to that scheme

relevant minimum wage means the minimum wage prescribed in this award for the class of work for which an employee is engaged

supported wage system (SWS) means the Commonwealth Government system to promote employment for people who cannot work at full award wages because of a disability, as documented in the Supported Wage System Handbook. The Handbook is available from the following website: www.jobaccess.gov.au <http://www.jobaccess.gov.au>

SWS wage assessment agreement means the document in the form required by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations that records the employee’s productive capacity and agreed wage rate

Eligibility criteria

Employees covered by this schedule will be those who are unable to perform the range of duties to the competence level required within the class of work for which the employee is engaged under this award, because of the effects of a disability on their productive capacity and who meet the impairment criteria for receipt of a disability support pension.

This schedule does not apply to any existing employee who has a claim against the employer which is subject to the provisions of workers compensation legislation or any provision of this award relating to the rehabilitation of employees who are injured in the course of their employment.

Supported wage rates

Employees to whom this schedule applies will be paid the applicable percentage of the relevant minimum wage according to the following schedule:

Assessed capacity (clause C.5) %
Relevant minimum wage %

Provided that the minimum amount payable must be not less than $71 per week.

Where an employee’s assessed capacity is 10%, they must receive a high degree of assistance and support.

Assessment of capacity

For the purpose of establishing the percentage of the relevant minimum wage, the productive capacity of the employee will be assessed in accordance with the Supported Wage System by an approved assessor, having consulted the employer and employee and, if the employee so desires, a union which the employee is eligible to join.

All assessments made under this schedule must be documented in an SWS wage assessment agreement, and retained by the employer as a time and wages record in accordance with the Act.

Lodgement of SWS wage assessment agreement

All SWS wage assessment agreements under the conditions of this schedule, including the appropriate percentage of the relevant minimum wage to be paid to the employee, must be lodged by the employer with Fair Work Australia.

All SWS wage assessment agreements must be agreed and signed by the employee and employer parties to the assessment. Where a union which has an interest in the award is not a party to the assessment, the assessment will be referred by Fair Work Australia to the union by certified mail and the agreement will take effect unless an objection is notified to Fair Work Australia within 10 working days.

Review of assessment

The assessment of the applicable percentage should be subject to annual or more frequent review on the basis of a reasonable request for such a review. The process of review must be in accordance with the procedures for assessing capacity under the supported wage system.

Other terms and conditions of employment

Where an assessment has been made, the applicable percentage will apply to the relevant minimum wage only. Employees covered by the provisions of this schedule will be entitled to the same terms and conditions of employment as other workers covered by this award on a pro rata basis.

Workplace adjustment

An employer wishing to employ a person under the provisions of this schedule must take reasonable steps to make changes in the workplace to enhance the employee’s capacity to do the job. Changes may involve re-design of job duties, working time arrangements and work organisation in consultation with other workers in the area.

Trial period

In order for an adequate assessment of the employee’s capacity to be made, an employer may employ a person under the provisions of this schedule for a trial period not exceeding 12 weeks, except that in some cases additional work adjustment time (not exceeding four weeks) may be needed.

During that trial period the assessment of capacity will be undertaken and the percentage of the relevant minimum wage for a continuing employment relationship will be determined.

The minimum amount payable to the employee during the trial period must be no less than $71 per week.

Work trials should include induction or training as appropriate to the job being trialled.

Where the employer and employee wish to establish a continuing employment relationship following the completion of the trial period, a further contract of employment will be entered into based on the outcome of assessment under clause C.5.

Calculating the actual minimum wage

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 D.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.

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 D.5.2(a)–(e) of this schedule applies to each ordinary hour worked by the trainee.

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

Other minimum wage provisions

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.

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.

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 Appendix D1 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.

Employment conditions

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.

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.

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.

Subject to clause D.3.5 of this schedule, all other terms and conditions of this award apply to a trainee unless specifically varied by this schedule.
