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.

Based on what you've told us, it looks like you're covered by the Storage Services and Wholesale Award 2010 [MA000084].
Employees who work a 38 hour week can accumulate 1 paid RDO during a roster period of 4 weeks. They are entitled to a maximum of 12 RDOs per year.
Employees have to be told 4 weeks in advance when their RDO will be during the roster period.
An employer and employee can agree to substitute RDOs so they can take RDOs at a different time to the time.
