Overtime for casuals in the Manufacturing Award

Overtime is calculated on an employee’s casual ordinary hourly rate.

The casual ordinary hourly rate is made up of:

  • the minimum hourly rate
  • any all-purpose allowances
  • the casual loading.

If a casual gets paid any all-purpose allowances, they must be added to the minimum hourly rate before calculating the casual loading.
