A roster is a timetable that shows the days and times employees are required to work.
On this page:
When an employer wants to change an employee’s regular roster or ordinary hours of work, they have to discuss it with the employees first. They have to:
- provide information about the change (for example, what the change will be and when)
- invite employees to give their views about the impact of the change
- consider these views about the impact of the change.
Awards, enterprise agreements and other registered agreements can set out extra rules about changing rosters and how and when employees are given rosters.
