Entitlement Summary of key changes
Reasonable Overtime
  • As before, an employee can refuse to work any overtime hours that are unreasonable. The following new factors must now be considered:
    • whether the employee receives any monetary benefits for working the additional hours (e.g. overtime or penalty rates);
    • the usual patterns of work in the industry;
    • the nature of the employee’s role and level of responsibility; and
    • whether the additional hours comply with the averaging requirements under clause 30 of the Modern Award.
  • The clause also clarifies that reasonable overtime is to be paid at ‘overtime rates’ and is subject to¬†s 62 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).
