Rostered days off
A rostered day off (RDO) is a day in a roster period that an employee doesn't have to work.
An employee's day off can be paid or unpaid, depending on how RDOs are set out in an award or registered agreement.
When RDOs are paid, it is because an employee has worked extra hours that add up over a set period of time and this is taken as an RDO.
Find information about RDOs in your award by selecting from the list below.
