Annualisation FAQs

Why do we need to complete Annualisation for an employee each year?

Annualisation needs to be done each year because the number of weeks an employee will work changes based on their start and end dates, as well as the public holidays that fall during the term breaks.

An employee's hours of work, pay rate, allowances, annual leave entitlement, and number of days of long service days may also change.

The Annualisation form is updated every year.

My annualised employee is terminating and they want their remaining annualisation to be paid in December as a lump sum, what do I do?

Use the Last Day of Duty in Term 4 on the NOVO6 and write in the comments that the remaining annualisation needs to be paid as a lump sum.

My annualised employee is terminating and wants to continue being paid until 30 January 2020, what do I do?

Use 30 January 2020 as the last day of duty on the NOVO6.

What do I do if an annualised employee no longer wishes to be annualised in 2020?

Please submit a NOVO2nt effective 31 January 2020 to make the employee Term Time only or Timesheet only.

If the Term Time only employee is starting prior to 31 January 2020, then timesheets will need to be submitted for hours worked until 30 January 2020.

If the Term Time only employee is starting after 31 January 2020 then leave without pay will need to be booked until the day before they return to school.
