This award summary outlines the major provisions of the Shop and Warehouse (Wholesale and Retail Establishments)
Award. It applies only to employers and employees who are in the Western Australian state industrial relations system and
who are covered by this state award. Major changes to legislation in 2006 mean that some employers and employees who
were previously covered by state awards are now covered by the national system for industrial relations. From 1 January
2010 many of these employers and employees will be covered by national modern awards created under the Fair Work Act
2009 . If you are unsure if you are in the WA state system, please contact Wageline or visit our website
www.commerce.wa.gov.au/wageline.

Scope: This award shall apply to all workers employed in any calling or callings herein mentioned in the industry or
industries carried on by the Respondents named in Schedule "C" and to all employers employing those workers.

Minimum Adult Award Wage: This clause sets out the provisions for the application of the Minimum Adult Award Wage.

Definitions: Defines terms and work classifications used in the award.

Classifications: There are four categories of employees in this award: Full time; Part time; Casual employees; and
Trainees. An employee's category depends entirely upon what basis he or she is employed. It does not depend upon the
number of hours worked. There are restrictions on the employment of part time and casual employees and trainees and it
is the employer's responsibility to decide on what basis an employee is to be engaged, to ensure that the employee is
aware of the nature of his/her employment and to ensure that the restrictions on the engagement of part time or casual
employees and trainees are not breached.

Full Time Workers: are employees engaged on a weekly basis for 38 ordinary hours each week and are paid a weekly
salary which depends on whether ordinary hours are worked Monday to Friday only, Monday to 1.00pm Saturday or
Monday to Saturday with the completion of ordinary hours after 1.00pm Saturday. For clarification in the presentation of
this schedule those salaries have been classified as groups X, Y and Z.

It is essential that employers note that a full time employee can work ordinary hours on only 5 days in any week or 10 days
in any fortnight (depending on the roster). Any work performed on the 6th day of a weekly roster or the 11th & 12th days of
a fortnightly roster is overtime, whether or not 38 (or 76 for the fortnightly roster) ordinary hours have been worked. All
hours worked on a Sunday are paid at the rate of double time, as per the overtime clause.

GROUP X - An employee who works 38 ordinary hours Monday to Friday only.
GROUP Y - An employee who works 38 ordinary hours between Monday and 1 pm Saturday with a day off during the
week.
GROUP Z - An employee who works 38 ordinary hours between Monday and Saturday with the completion of ordinary
hours after 1 pm Saturday and a day off during the week.

Part Time Employees: Are employees engaged on a weekly basis and may work on any day, Monday to Saturday
inclusive for a minimum of 12 hours per fortnight and a maximum of 64 ordinary hours per fortnight, to be worked on not
more than 10 days in any one fortnight and for not less than 3 hours nor more than 9.5 hours on any one day (except a
day of Late Night Trading when they may work up to 11.5 hours). Part time employees are paid an hourly rate and are
entitled to paid annual leave, paid sick leave and paid public holidays in proportion to the number of ordinary hours worked
each week.

Casual Employees: Are employees engaged by the hour and shall not be engaged for less than 3 consecutive hours on
any one day or for more than 30 ordinary hours in any one week. Provided that a casual may be engaged for 38 ordinary
hours per week for a period not exceeding 4 consecutive weeks. Casual workers are paid on an hourly basis and do not
receive paid annual leave, sick leave or paid public holidays. The employment of a casual employee may be terminated by
the giving or receiving of 1 hour's notice.
A casual worker employed for a full day Monday to Friday receives a loading of 20% on the ordinary hourly rate for a full
time (Group X) employee.
A casual worker employed for less than a full day Monday to Friday receives a loading of 25% on the ordinary hourly rate
prescribed for a full time (Group X) employee.
Casual workers employed on a Saturday are paid the rates shown.

Trainees: The award provides for trainees to be engaged in accordance with the provisions of the New Apprenticeship
Scheme. An employer cannot engage a trainee other than pursuant to the scheme. Details of the scheme and the
requirements for engagement may be obtained from the Department of Training and Workforce Davelopment.

Hours (Full Time Employees): An average of 38 per week to be worked Monday to Saturday between the hours shown
below and in accordance with one of the rosters shown below. Employees can work for up to 9.5 ordinary hours on any of
these days. Provided that 11.5 ordinary hours may be worked on the night of late night trading with a reduction in the

Copy of Shop and Warehouse Award draft 2                            4                                                 24/08/2010
Meal Money: (1) When a worker is required to continue working after the usual finishing time for more than one hour
he/she shall be paid $11.90 for the purchase of any meal required.
(2) Late Night Trading Meal Allowance:
A worker who commences work at or prior to 1.00pm on the day of late night trading and is required to work beyond
7.00pm on that day shall be paid a meal allowance of $11.90.
(3) Meal money may be paid prior to the meal period on the day upon which the overtime is to be worked or as part of the
normal weekly or fortnightly wage as appropriate.

Overtime: Overtime for all employees is calculated on the hourly rate applicable to the employee's classification at any
particular time (ie: 1/38 of Group X, Y or Z or the appropriate part time or casual rate) and is paid for as follows: For all
hours in excess of 76 per fortnight, all hours on a Rostered Day Off, all hours before the usual starting time or after the
usual finishing time, and all hours outside the spread of hours = time & one half for the first two hours and double time
thereafter (except if overtime is on Sat after 12 noon when the overtime rate is double time) . For all hours worked on
Sundays overtime is paid at the rate of double time. Work on Public Holidays is paid at the rate of double time & one half.
An employee shall only be required to work on no more than 5 days per week or 10 days per fortnight. Overtime is
calculated on a daily basis except for Small Retail Shops where it is calculated on a weekly basis. Note: paid time off in lieu
of the payment of overtime may be arranged by mutual agreement between an employer and an employee, at the
appropriate overtime rates.

Public Holidays: Public holidays are holidays without loss of pay for full time and part time employees (ie. they count as
time worked for the purposes of ordinary hours, overtime, rostered day off accrual and the 10 start per fortnight limitation).
Another day off with pay may be taken in lieu of the gazetted public holiday by arrangement between the parties. A worker
absent without leave on the day before or after a public holiday shall forfeit pay for the holiday and the day of absence,
except if the absence is due to illness or injury. A fulltime or part time employee, terminated by the employer for reasons
other than misconduct on the business day before a public holiday or holidays, is to be paid for the holidays. For each
public holiday falling during an employee's absence on annual leave (if it would otherwise be an ordinary working day), an
additional day of leave shall be given.

Annual Leave: Full time and part time employees are entitled to 4 weeks paid annual leave (plus a loading of 17.5%) per
12 month period. Annual leave accrues weekly at the rate of 2.923 hours per completed week of service for a full time
employee, and on a proportionate basis for a part time employee. Full time and part time employees who leave their
employment, or are terminated, may be entitled to be paid their unused annual leave. This includes annual leave accrued
in an incomplete year of service.

Sick leave: Full time and part time employees are entitled to paid sick leave if they are unable to attend or remain at work
because of ill health or injury (other than illness or injury compensated under the Workers Compensation and Injury
Management Act 1981 ) and if they have sufficient sick leave credits. Sick Leave credits accrue on weekly basis of 1.461
hours for every week of completed service. This accrues proportionately for part time employees based on the average
number of hours worked each week. Sick leave credits accrue from year to year if not used.


Carer's Leave: The Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993 permits an employee to take paid carer's leave in
certain circumstances. Such leave is to be deducted from an employee's personal leave (commonly known as sick leave);
it is not a separate leave entitlement. There is also an entitlement to unpaid carer's leave in certain circumstances.

Parental Leave: Parental leave includes maternity, paternity and adoption leave. An employee is entitled to up to 52
weeks unpaid leave, provided that they have not less than 12 months’ continuous service with that employer. This clause
operates in conjunction with the Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993 , providing additional parental
leave entitlements.

Bereavement Leave: An employee is entitled to paid leave for a period of up to 2 ordinary working days on the death of
the spouse, de facto spouse, parent, step-parent, child or step-child or any other person who, immediately before that
person's death, lived with the employee. The Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993 extends bereavement
leave to the death of a grandparent.

Long Service Leave: An employee's entitlement to long service leave under this award will be as prescribed by the Long
Service Leave Act 1958 . Under this Act, an employee is entitled to 8.667 weeks long service leave after 10 continuous
years of service. An employee who has completed at least seven continuous years of service may be entitled to pro rata
long service leave on termination. For further information, or to obtain a copy of a publication regarding long service
leave, please contact Wageline on 1300 655 266.

Contract of Service: The following provisions apply in the termination of employment.
An employer wishing to terminate the services of a full-time or part-time employee shall provide the following notice:
                    Period of Continuous Service                                  Period of Notice
                    Not more than 1 year                                               1 week
                    More than 1 year but not more than 3 years                        2 weeks
                    More than 3 years but not more than 5 years                       3 weeks
                    More than 5 years                                                 4 weeks
Note : An additional week’s notice shall be given to employees over 45 years of age with over two years service with the
employer. However, a weekly hand employed for a period of 4 consecutive weeks or less is deemed to be a casual worker
and is paid accordingly. The provision does not apply if the employee is terminated for incompetence, refusal or neglect to
obey orders or for misconduct, or if during a period of notice the worker does not carry out the duties in the same manner
as he/she did prior to the notice being given.
An employee wishing to terminate their services shall provide the following notice period:
                    Period of Continuous Service                                  Period of Notice
                    1 Month                                                       Moment's notice
                    1-2 Months                                                          1 day
                    2 Months or More                                                   1 week
The employment of a casual employee may be terminated by the giving or receiving of 1 hour’s notice.

Redundancy: This clause applies to employers who engage 15 or more employees at the time of any redundancies.
Where the employer has made a definite decision that the employer no longer wishes the job the employee has been
doing to be done by anyone and this is not due to the ordinary and customary turnover of labour and that decision may
lead to termination of employment, the employer shall provide the following amount of severance pay in respect of a
continuous period of service. This award is subject to and must be read in conjunction with the Termination, Change and
Redundancy General Order of the Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission. In some instances TCR order
may offer a greater benefit, in these instances the employee will receive whichever is greater.

                    Period of Continuous Service                                   Severance Pay
                    Less than 1 year                                                      nil
                    1 year but less than 2 years                                    2 weeks pay
                    2 years but less than 3 years                                   4 weeks pay
                    3 years but less than 4 years                                   6 weeks pay
                    4 years but less than 5 years                                   8 weeks pay
                    5 years and over                                                10 weeks pay

Introduction of Change: An employer must notify and discuss with employees the likely “significant effects” that will
potentially occur as a result of the introduction of major changes in production, programme, organisation, structure or
technology.

Termination, Change and Redundancy: This award is subject to the Termination, Change and Redundancy Order of the
Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission. This General Order prescribes for many employees an entitlement to
severance payments of up to 16 weeks of pay. This entitlement does not apply if the employer has fewer than 15
employees. Other mandatory requirements on termination or introduction of change in the workplace include:

* written notice of and discussions with employees about significant change in which job restructuring, changing of
   hours or location or operational changes in the business may occur;
* time off of up to one day's paid leave during each week of the notice period to search for other employment; and
* if requested by the employee, a statement specifying the period of employment and classification or type of work
  performed.

Time and Wages Records: Each employer bound by this award shall maintain a record at each establishment, containing
information relating to each worker. A Times and Wages publication is available on the Department of Commerce website
explaining the way time and wage records are maintained and the rules relating to inspection of these records. For further
advice please contact Wageline on 1300 655 266.

Superannuation: The federal Government’s Superannuation Guarantee Charge Act 1992 requires that all employers
(including companies) shall make superannuation contributions, at least quarterly, to an approved fund for most employees
with gross earnings of more than $450 per month. The current rate of contribution is 9% of your earnings base. Further
information is available from the Superannuation Helpline on 13 10 20.
