Break between rostered shifts
Question: I have just started working at a nursing home operated by Bupa Care Services. Can you let me know what the break between rostered shifts is supposed to be?
Answer: Under Clause 22 of the Bupa Care Services, NSWNMA, ANMF (NSW Branch) and HSU NSW Branch, New South Wales Enterprise Agreement 2013, employees will receive a break of 10 hours between the completion of one ordinary work period or shift and the commencement of another ordinary work period or shift. By mutual agreement, the 10-hour rest break may be reduced to 8 hours.
