Casual professional staff

Casual professional staff

Casual professional staff are paid on an hourly basis. Hourly rates are set out in Schedule 2 - Casual rates in the Professional Staff Enterprise Agreement.

After 1200 hours of service, casual professional staff progress to the next step within the same classification level. Your payroll advisor can help you with how many hours service you have.

Pay claims and timesheets

To claim payment, complete and submit a timesheet via TimeFiler. Step-by-step instructions are provided in the TimeFiler user guide for casual professional staff and the Timefiler guide for managers and administrators.

To avoid delays, ensure your timesheet is submitted and approved before the deadlines below. Ask your department administrator if earlier deadlines apply in your department.

Overtime and shift allowances

Casual staff are entitled to payment at overtime rates for work in excess of seven, or by mutual agreement, 10 hours on any given day or 35 hours in a week. If the University requests for a casual professional staff member to work on Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday, the staff member will be entitled to be paid the applicable shift penalty.

Shift penalties are automatically calculated by TimeFiler for any shifts claimed on Saturday, Sunday or public holidays. If a casual staff member is not entitled to receive penalty rates, the supervisor should select the ‘No penalties’ box on the TimeFiler timesheet.
