The Award provides that where an employee is not able to perform any work at any location because of inclement weather, the employee will receive payment at the ordinary hourly rate for ordinary hours. Payment for time lost due to inclement weather is subject to a maximum of 32 hours of pay in any 4-week period for each employee

If an employee commences employment during a 4-week period, the employee will be credited with the following:

a)       32 hours where the employee commences on any working day within the first week;

b)       24 hours where the employee commences on any working day within the second week;

c)       16 hours where the employee commences on any working day within the third week; and

d)       8 hours where the employee commences on any working day within the 4th week in any 4-week period.

This is a rolling inclement weather calendar where the ‘first week’ is a reference to the first week in the rolling calendar, not the employee’s first week of employment. If the employee joins the rolling calendar in the third week, they will only have up to 16 hours of inclement weather entitlement for the remainder of the cycle.
