Employee Wage Book

PUB-6The function of the Employee Wage Book {1330} is to ensure accurate records are kept of employee working hours to enable accurate wage and allowance payments.
Wage employees are to record the following information on the Employee Wage Sheet {1330}:

  • Site number and the date they are working there
  • Record the time commenced, time finished and amount of time taken for lunch

In accordance with the Quarry Award a meal break should be taken between 4 and 6 hours after the commencement of the shift. In the event of an employee leaving earlier than the end of their shift they should state if sick, using RDO entitlement or another type of leave.

The Site Manager is to initial each square at item 7 on the sheet, and sign the bottom of the page, thereby authorising the hours worked by that employee.  They should also use the bottom of the sheet to inform the Personnel Manager if the employee has an entitlement to ‘Travel’ or ‘Camp Allowance’ for that week. If ‘Camp Allowance’ is payable then the number of nights also needs to be written.

It is the responsibility of the Site Manager to ensure the original timesheets are faxed or given to the Personnel Manager by 9.00am on the day of processing.
