Salary costs for staff are made up of the following components:
- Salary rate payable according to the applicable Collective Agreement and as specified in individual employment contracts
- Provisions for annual and long service leave provisions are calculated each month based on individual staff leave balances and are credited back to the cost centre when staff take leave.
- Casual staff are not included in calculations of leave provisions as they are not eligible for leave. They receive a salary rate loading (currently 23%) in lieu of leave.
Salary cost estimating tools are available for:
- Continuing and fixed term staff
- Casual staff
