March 2017 IR News - Calculating Allowances for Casual Workers By CHAS CINI
The review into the Modern award continues and will do until the middle of the year. Some members are still paying penalty rates on Saturday afternoon and Sunday (particularly Dairies) when these were “cancelled” in 2010 and the contractor v employee issue continues to raise its head. I think this issue is an important reminder to members not to enter sham arrangements. There are a number of public holidays coming up as well and some have been paying the PH penalty rate on the casual loading.
This update includes calculating payment for casual workers, allowances, long service leave, penalty rates, superannuation, work health & safety and contractor arrangements.
