Please refer to the DEWR Fact Sheet for details. In brief, the amendments change the method of accrual of a casual employee’s ‘working hours’ to the total of hours worked per week, averaged over the weeks in a quarter. This ensures a fairer calculation of casual employees’ working hours where they may vary week-to-week (sometimes exceeding 35 hours).
Please refer to the DEWR Fact Sheet for details. In brief, the amendments expand the meaning of ‘qualifying service’ to deem that certain weeks where a casual employee does not work due to specific rostering arrangements are periods of qualifying service.
Under the amendments, a casual employee’s casual loading will be applied to the levy paid by employers, and also to the payment of the casual employee’s long service leave entitlements. See Information for Casuals for more details.
It’s important to note that the changes take effect halfway through the Australian financial year. This means the expected eligible wages for casuals may be different in the first and second halves of the FY. Therefore, auditors will need to ensure they’re referring to the correct documentation when preparing an annual audit report for employers registered under the Coal LSL scheme.
