Key Updates

6 August 2018

The award has been updated to reorder Pay condition rule sets when shift work is worked

August 2018

Allowance rate update for Kilometre Allowance - Car (above and below ATO limit). Further information can be found at ATO.

1 August 2018

The award has been updated to reflect changes made as part of the Fair Work Decision 4 year review of modern awards. The determination for the new clause in the modern award allowing employees to take unpaid leave to deal with family and domestic violence can be found here. Family and Domestic Violence leave applies from the first full pay period on or after 1 August 2018. Further information can be found at Fair Work.

Employees, including part-time and casual employees are entitled to 5 days unpaid family and domestic violence leave each year of their employment. The 5 days renews each 12 months of their employment but does not accumulate if the leave is not used.

A new leave category has been created - “Family and Domestic Violence Leave” and a new Work Type - “Family and Domestic Violence Leave taken”.  The Leave Allowance Templates and any impacted rule conditions have also been updated.

July 2018

Following minor changes:

  • Adjusting new Pay rates for rounding purposes, so only had variances of +/- 1c.
  • Pay condition rule set changes to clause 27 in relation to shift work timings. 

28 June 2018

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:

  1. 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.
  2. The Payment Summary Classification settings for Allowance based pay categories have been updated as per STP requirements.

 

19 January 2018

Upon further clarification from Fair Work regarding overtime for part time and casual employees, we have removed the requirement for the tag "5/7.6" to trigger specific rules. All part time and casual employees are entitled to overtime if they work more than 5 days at 7.6 hours AND if they work more than 38 hours per week.

12 January 2018

The following changes are a result of a general award overview and incorporate new enhancements made to pay conditions rules:

  1. Created shift conditions, as listed further below;
  2. Created new tag "5/7.6" to be assigned to employees whose 38 hours week is made up of 5 days at 7.6 hours each day. Otherwise employees will be paid overtime after working in excess of 38 hours per week;
  3. The name of the existing "Kilometre Allowance" pay category has been amended to "Kilometre Allowance - Car (up to ATO limit)" with a unit rate of $0.66.
  4. A new pay category called "Kilometre Allowance - Car (above ATO limit)" with a unit rate of $0.12 has been created. This is a taxable pay category and will be paid in addition to the "Kilometre Allowance - Car (up to ATO limit)" pay category. The purpose of separating the pay categories is to ensure the PAYG is calculated in accordance with ATO requirements.
  5. The automated meal break rule now is automatically excluded from timesheets created from a leave request. Additionally, the rule will search any manual break recorded before automatically applying a meal break;
  6. In addition to the option provided in (2) above, full time employees can have their 38 hour week averaged over a 4 week period. To do this, choose the rule set period = Four Weekly.
  7. Added a new rule to cover clause 26.3 of the Award, being "If an employee is interrupted during their normal meal break and directed to work, the employee will be paid at overtime rates for all work done until such time as the meal break is resumed."
  8. Higher duties rule amended to reflect 'day' criteria as opposed to 'shift' criteria;
  9. Award clause numbers have now been added to the title of the relevant rule set. This makes it easier to correlate the interpretation with the specific Award clauses.
  10. When Leading Hand or First Aid work types are assigned to a timesheet, the allowances are now paid on per hour basis but also apply the maximum weekly payment.
  11. Tags descriptions have been added.
