Increasing contracted hours
I have worked part time at a nursing home operated by RSL LifeCare for about two years. I am always doing extra shifts. Can this be recognised in some way?
Clause 11.3(d) of the RSL LifeCare, NSWNMA and HSU NSW Enterprise Agreement 2017–2020 permits a review of part-time hours at the request of an employee. This can be done annually and looks at whether an employee is regularly working more than their guaranteed minimum hours. If so, these can be adjusted to reflect this, recorded in writing. However, additional hours won’t be counted if due to another employee being absent on leave or a temporary increase owing to a specific resident need.
