Know Your Rights: Changes to The Professional Employees Award from September 17

Professionals Australia has worked for many years to establish overtime and penalty payments under the Professional Employees Award. This year, thanks to those ongoing efforts, the Fair Work Commission announced significant changes to work hours, including new requirements for employers requiring their employees to work above 38 hours per week.

You are invited to a two-part series of webinars about these changes.

PART 1 - The Change We Needed Wednesday, September 13, 2023 12:30 PM AEST, via Zoom

This webinar is open to members and non-members and will cover the union story behind getting the changes to the hours of work.

PART 2 - The Change We Won Friday, September 15, 2023 12:30 PM AEST, via Zoom

This webinar is for members only and will cover what members must do to make the most of those changes, no matter what end of the pay scale you are on. If you are not a member, join here.

According to a 2022 study by The Australia Institute, the average Australian worker performs 6 weeks of unpaid overtime per year.

It’s critical that you know your rights under the updated Award. Being a union member means you will be armed with the necessary knowledge to identify any possible issues with implementing these changes in your workplace. You will also have your union support, expert advice, and representation if you are unfairly treated.

If you are not a PA member, come to Part 1 to learn more! If you are a union member, register for both sessions and forward this to a colleague who may be impacted to remind them that every member makes us stronger.

Join PA today.
