NOTE: These pay conditions do not cover casual horticultural and maintenance employees as the Fair Work Ombudsman is currently reviewing the coverage of such casuals under this Award.
The Award has been updated to reflect the Fair Work Commission’s national minimum wage increase of 3.5% from its Annual Wage Review 2017-18 decision. This also includes updates to expense-related allowances.
These changes come into effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2018. Please install these updates AFTER you have finalised your last pay run prior to the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2018.
Additionally, the following changes have been made as part of this update:
- New laundry allowance pay categories and rule conditions were created to reflect the ATO threshold maximum limits for claiming of laundry (not dry cleaning) for deductible clothing under the Award. Further information can be found in the “Cleaning of Work Clothing” section of this ATO article.
- The Payment Summary Classification settings for Allowance based pay categories have been updated as per Single Touch Payroll (STP) requirements.
Added employment agreements (EA) at each level to cater for the award clause below, the new EA's can be selected using higher classifications in the timesheets;
12.1 Junior employees employed in the bar or other places where liquor is sold must be paid at the adult rate of pay in clause 17.2 for the classification of the work being performed.
- Fix any auto meal break rules so that they don't apply to leave requests
- Updated allowance pay categories configuration. e.g. changed payment summary classifications.
- Created Kilometre allowance pay categories - above and below ATO limits
1 January 2018
The award has been updated to reflect changes made as part of the Fair Work Decision 4 year review of modern awards.
The changes are a replacement of Clause 10.5(b) - Casuals and Clause 28 - Overtime to include overtime paid for casuals. This now provides for casual staff to be paid overtime in excess of the following:
- For a maximum of 38 hours per week or, where the casual employee works in accordance with a roster, an average of 38 hours per week over the roster cycle (which may not exceed 4 weeks)
- 12 hours in one day
NB: We have applied the rule using 38 hours worked over a week to remain consistent with the rule set for permanent staff.
Implicitly, this also means overtime can be converted to TIL by using the 'Time off in lieu of Overtime' employee tag, and this has also been reflected in the rules.
These changes are reflected in the "Registered & Licensed Clubs Casual" and "Registered & Licensed Clubs Casual Fitness Instructor" rule set. We've also automatically enabled the work types relating to meal allowances for casual staff. To be paid a meal allowance, the 'Meal Allowance' work type needs to be selected on a separate line of the timesheet and a unit of 1 recorded.
These changes have also meant a set of new pay categories for casual overtime and the pay rate templates for casual employees and fitness instructors have been updated.
Part time employees
Clause 10.4 has been updated for part time employees, and mandates the idea of 'guaranteed hours' reflected as the employee standard hours in KeyPay, and the 'employees availability'. We have interpreted the employees availability as only affecting the hours available to roster the part time employee (use 'unavailability' in rostering to achieve this), so no changes are reflected in the pay condition rule set.
The new changes do mean that an employee can work hours in excess of their guaranteed hours and not attract overtime, until they've worked in excess of 38 hours or an average of 38 hours per roster cycle.
This means we've removed the 'overtime in excess of standard hours' and replaced this with 'overtime in excess of 38 hours per week'.
These changes have been reflected in the 'Registered & Licensed Clubs Permanent' rule set.
Please note that the changes come into effect on the first full pay period on or after 1 January 2018. This means that you should only install these updates once you've completed the last pay period that pays shifts worked during December 2017.
