Table 2: Casual rates

1.   Calculation of Casual Rates

1.1   The minimum salaries paid to casual employees shall be at the rates provided in this Schedule. These rates are derived from three base rates calculated using the following formulae:

(A)   Lecturing rate and higher marking rate: the base rate applicable to lecturing or for purposes of the higher marking rate is determined by reference to the second step of the full-time Level B scale, and calculated as follows:

Level B Step 2 Annual $/52  + 25% = Casual Hourly Rate
37.5  

(B)   Rate applicable to performance of other duties involving full subject co-ordination or possession of a relevant doctoral qualification: the base rate applicable where the duties include full subject co-ordination or employees possess a relevant doctoral qualification is determined by reference to the sixth step of the full-time Level A scale, and calculated as follows:

Level A Step 6 Annual $/52  + 25% = Casual Hourly Rate
37.5  

(C)   Rate applicable to all other duties: the base rate applicable to all other duties including tutoring rates not covered by paragraph (B) above is determined by reference to the second step of the full-time Level A scale, and calculated as follows:

Level A Step 2 Annual $/52  + 25% = Casual Hourly Rate
37.5  

1.2   The casual loading is 25%.

1.3   The applications of the above formulae to the casual rates are represented on the table below.
