Instructions for assessment including WHS requirements

This assignment consists of 2 Parts, Part A and Part B:

For Part A

you are required to establish a roster based on provided criteria, access the Fair Work website and determine the award rates, establish overtime as applicable at the correct award rates, and calculate the wages for each staff member. Further, you are required to establish the total wage bill for the working week.

For Part B

you are required to troubleshoot a short notice staff incident which does require you to investigate and find a solution for replacement of staff, determine the associated impact on budget and the legal aspects to be considered based on the legislative provisions for shifts, breaks, overtime etc. on the Fair Work website.

 

 

PART A

Your Tasks

All relevant information relating to awards and award conditions must be sourced from the following website: http://www.fwc.gov.au/documents/modern_awards/award/ma000009/default.htm

You are required to develop the roster for the week commencing 16 January 2017 to 22 January 2017, using the spreadsheets provided.

Note: The information provided below includes a 30 minute meal break for each staff member.

You will need to use the Roster spreadsheet to develop this staff roster on the first Tab.

Mark (Front Office grade 1) – will be working from 13.30 – 22.00 on Wed, Thurs, Fri and Sun and from 13.30 – 20.00 on Sat.

Tom (Front Office grade 1) – will be working from 6.00 – 14.30 on Mon, Tues, Wed and Sun and from 6.00 – 12.30 on Saturday.

Jordan (Front Office grade 1) – will be working from 22.00 – 6.30 Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri and from 24.00 – 6.30 on Sat.

Sam (Front Office grade 2) – will be working from 15.30 – 22.00 on Mon, from 6.00 – 14.30 on Thurs, Fri and Sat and from 13.30 – 22.00 on Sun.

Shelly (Front Office grade 2) – will be working from 13.30 – 22.00 on Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs and from 13.30 – 20.00 on Fri.

Darren (Front Office grade 3) – will be working from 22.00 – 6.30 on Mon, Fri, Sat and Sun and from 24.00 – 6.30 on Tues.

Scott (Front Office Supervisor) will be working from 6.00 – 14.30 on Mon, Tues, Wed and Sun and from 6.00 – 12.30 on Thurs.

Margaret (Front Office Supervisor) – will be working from 15.30 – 22.00 on Tues, 13.30 – 22.00 on Wed and Sat, 12.30 – 21.00 on Thurs and from 6.00 – 14.30 on Fri.

Once you have developed the roster based on the above information, transfer the roster on TAB Part A and:

 

Check if each employee has at least two rostered days off in the week. Highlight these days in grey colour.

Calculate the weekly wages for each of the staff.

Calculate work hours for the week for each staff member.

Locate the correct hourly rate for each staff member based on their award including penalty rates which apply for specific times during weekdays and for Saturdays and Sundays.

Calculate the wages for each staff member for the week for this roster.

Calculate the total Wages for the week.

Determine if the wage budget of $7200.00 for the week is being met. By how much is it over or under?

 

 

Part B

You are required to troubleshoot a short notice staff incident which does require you to investigate and find a solution for replacement of staff, determine the associated impact on budget and the legal aspects to be considered based on the legislative provisions for shifts, breaks, overtime etc. on the Fair Work website:

http://www.fwc.gov.au/documents/modern_awards/award/ma000009/default.htm

It is Saturday afternoon on the 18th January at 14.30 hours. Sam leaves work due to symptoms of gastro and the supervisor tells her to stay home until she is well again.

Identify the existing staff who could be contacted to cover for Sam’s shift on Sunday from 13.30 – 22.00 and calculate their entitlements to enable you to do a comparison and evaluation.

 

 

Calculate the wage entitlement for a casual to cover Sam’s shift Sunday from 13.30 – 22.00 at award level “Front Office Level 3”.

 

 

How is the wage budget of $7200.00 affected if no existing staff can cover the shift of Sam, and a casual for this shift at Front Office Level 3 would be employed?

 

 

What would be the cheapest option for the business to cover Sam’s shift given your findings in a, b and c?

Would you choose this option?
Which aspects do you need to consider in terms of job role/level and adequate breaks?

PART B

You are required to develop another roster for a given period as outlined to you by your trainer below. If this is concurrent with the roster developed in Part A, identify 5 options for economical approaches e.g. combining workplace tasks ; staggering start and finish times or similar. Your colleagues have told you that the roster during period 1 was insufficient in terms of staff mix and numbers to handle Friday and Saturday nights due to the high frequency and variance of different meals ordered If you work in a different department apply this issue in that area). Reflect this in your next roster by including 1 additional level 1 or 2 and 1 additional staff at level 3 during the evening service (or e.g. check out/reception – during the morning shift).

Once you have established the shift/rostering requirements you are required to interview each staff member and identify any special social, religious, family or other requirements to be considered for the purpose of the roster period.
