Did you know you are entitled to a broken shift allowance under your current workplace agreement?
NWSS are aware of it and they most certainly pay it … if you put it on your timesheet.
So, keep that in mind and if you have worked a broken shift, be sure to add that in when filling in your timesheet to get the allowance.
In case you’re not sure, a “broken shift” means “any shift worked in two periods where a continuous break in the two periods exceeds one hour” as defined in your agreement.
It’s worth having a copy of your agreement at work to look over in case there are allowances or conditions that you may not be aware of. Your workplace should provide you with a copy – if they don’t, please give HACSUassist a call on 1300 880 032, and we can email one to you.
