Maximum number of hours
The maximum number of ordinary hours employees can work is:
- 9 hours per day (with 1 day of up to 10.5 hours)
- 10.5 hours on a 2nd day where there is an agreement between the employer and employee
- 38 hours per week.
Averaging weekly hours
An employer and employee can agree to average the employee’s hours over more than a week.
This means the employee may work more than 38 hours one week, but less in another.
Spread of hours
The ordinary hours in the Hair and Beauty Award can be worked during the following times:
|Monday - Friday
|7am - 9pm
||7am - 6pm
||10am - 5pm
Each time a part-time or casual employee works, they have to be given at least 3 hours of work in a row.
If they aren't given these hours, they still have to be paid a minimum of 3 hours.
The minimum daily hours for a full-time employee will depend on their rostered hours.
Check the Hair and Beauty Award for different minimum daily hours on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.
Arranging hours of work
An employee can work a maximum of 5 days a week. If ordinary hours are worked on 6 days, the next week hours will be worked on a maximum of 4 days.
