What are my obligations during the Daylight Savings changeover? (Last Updated On: October 5, 2018)

What are my obligations during the Daylight Savings changeover?

Daylight savings is upon us, and for business owners in ACT, NSW, SA, Tasmania and Victoria it means understanding your obligations to employees who will be working during the changeover.

7 October 2018

Clocks will officially go forward one hour at 2am on Sunday 7 October. To understand your obligations as an employer, now is the time to check your relevant Award, Agreement or Employment Contracts for specific obligations relating to Daylight Savings.

If your employment paperwork doesn’t mention anything about Daylight Savings – then you pay your employees by the clock (that means paying staff for a full shift even though they technically worked one hour less).

Need advice on understanding your obligations during the Daylight Savings changeover? Contact our Advice team to discuss.
