Topics of Interest

  • Casual Employees’ Travel
    In many instances, a casual employee has no entitlement to claim the cost of domestic travel or travelling allowance, as a work base is defined in the Enterprise Agreement as the place of work where an employee spends most time on duty.

    Where a casual employee travels for all or most of a number of consecutive working days, the place travelled to will be their work base. It is an employee’s responsibility (expense) to travel between their home and their work base, and travelling allowance cannot be claimed at an employee’s work base.

    Please contact the Staff Help Desk for further information.
