An employee who wants a roster change also needs to give 7 days’ notice, except where the employee is ill or in an emergency.
Rosters can also be changed at any time:
- if the employer and employee agree
- to enable the functions of the hospital, facility or organisation to be carried on where another employee is absent on personal/carer’s leave, compassionate leave, ceremonial leave or leave to deal with family and domestic leave, or in an emergency.
