Shire Of Broome 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.
