                 PAYMENT OF BROOME ALLOWANCE ON LEAVE

HUMAN RESOURCES DIRECTIVE                                                     HR 011

Implementation Date:                                                SEPTEMBER 2004

Scope:
                                                            Previous Policy Number N/A

1.   The Broome Allowance by virtue of its definition in the EBA is an integral part
     of the normal salary and wages;
2.   The origins of the Broome allowance was an “annual” allowance to
     compensate for airfares and electricity and as such an employee should
     generally not receive more than 52 weeks per year.
3.   The Shire is obliged to pay the Broome Allowance under the current EBA on
     payments of annual leave and long service leave taken at ordinary time
     during the course of an employees employment;
4.   The Shire is obliged to pay the Broome Allowance under the current EBA on
     payments of annual leave made on termination. It is the CEOs intention to
     review this as part of the next EBA negotiations.
5.   Other arrangements involving the cashing out of leave during employment
     or the taking of leave at double and half pay are made under an
     agreement between the employee and employer. Given the position of
     point 2, the CEO will only enter into an agreement with the employee
     according to the following:
     5.1.   Annual Leave cashed out – No Broome Allowance to be paid as
            Broome Allowance is already being paid fortnightly to the employee;
     5.2.   Long Service Leave taken at 6.5 weeks/double pay – Broome
            Allowance only to be paid on 6.5 weeks will ensure the employee
            does not receive more than 52 weeks of Broome Allowance in one
            year.
     5.3.   Long Service Leave taken exceeding 13 weeks (ie at 26 weeks/half
            pay) will generally not be permitted unless with an express agreement
            of the CEO.
