We’ve created a new minimum pay rate for sessions under 2 hours long as you’ll be paid for a minimum of 2 hours whenever you’re engaged by a client from July 1st 2022. Since the minimum session time for most clients is 1.5 hours, many client will opt for 1.5-hour sessions and not 2-hour sessions. [...]
As your employment is on a casual basis, you are not entitled to paid annual leave, personal/carer’s leave and compassionate leave. You are, however, entitled to unpaid compassionate leave in accordance with the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (“FWA”).
You are entitled to reasonably seek a day off on a public holiday in the State or Territory in which you are employed. If you are required to work and choose to accept a shift on a Public Holiday, you will be compensated in accordance with the applicable award (if any).
FairWork is a government organisation that decides the minimum standards for employees. When creating jobs, all employers must comply with the rules FairWork sets out. Fora's allied health assistants (AHAs) fall under the Social Community Home and Disability Services (SHADS) Award. Any changes that occur to this award will affect Fora and our AHAs.
Payroll is every fortnight. To be paid correctly and for your client to be invoiced accurately, please ensure you log your assist after your session or within 24 hours. If you have any questions about logging your assist, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 1800 921 422.
