The Fair Work Commission has issued changes to the Black Coal Mining Industry Award 2010, which are now in effect, meaning employers should comply from now.
One of the changes to the Award involves a number of modifications to the temporary shutdown clause, with the following focus points:
The other change is to incorporate a term that is also in a number of other modern awards and relates to excessive annual leave accruals, which are defined as an accrual of more than 350 hours (10 weeks) or 420 hours (12 weeks) for a shiftworker.
The changes are now in operation, meaning employers must consider the above in managing employees covered by this Award. Employers should be making sure they are across the changes, ensuring they are comfortable with how to implement changes to maintain compliance.
