Have you ever wondered about how different shifts are defined and what penalties may apply for that shift?
Here’s what your Possability Agreement says:
Day shift means any shift worked wholly between the hours of 6.00am and 6.00pm.
Afternoon shift means any shift finishing after 6.00pm and at or before midnight.
Nightshift means any shift finishing after midnight and at or before 8.00am.
According to your agreement, when you work an afternoon and night shift, or awake shift as they're often called, you “shall be paid 15 per cent more than the ordinary rate”.
If you are ever unsure about whether or not the shift you are working should be paid at your ordinary rate or should include a penalty, give HACSUassist a call so we can clarify that for you.
