Based on what you've told us, it looks like you're covered by the Building and Construction General On-site Award 2010 [MA000020].
Full-time employees can accumulate 1 paid RDO during a roster period of 4 weeks. They are entitled to 13 RDOs per year when they work a 20 day cycle continuously for 12 months.
During a 4 week cycle of 20 days (5 days each week), an employee will work 8 hours per day for 19 days, and have 1 paid RDO.
An employee takes their RDO:
- on the fourth Monday in the 4 week cycle, unless it's a public holiday
- the next working day, if the fourth Monday is a public holiday or
- on a day agreed to by the employer and the majority of employees (eg. the fourth Friday).
Check the Building and Construction Award for information on:
- arranging how to bank RDO
- substituting a RDO for another day
- RDOs for shiftworkers in civil construction.
Rostered days off for part-time employees
Part-time employees can accumulate RDOs on a pro rata basis or be paid for all hours they work instead of taking any RDOs.
When a part-time employee doesn't accumulate an RDO, they won't work or be paid for an RDO that the rest of the employees take in the cycle (eg. every fourth Monday).
