Types of work: confirming time work

For a worker to be performing time work (NMWM07040) they must not be performing salaried hours work (NMWM07020) and be paid in relation to the time worked (on the basis of the time spent doing the work).

When presented with a worker performing time work it is important to confirm that time work is applicable.

For example:

Where a worker is performing time work they commonly have an hourly rate and sometimes an indication of how many hours they are expected to work. If a time worker works longer than expected they will earn more and be paid extra in relation to the additional time worked. A time worker’s pay will always reflect the number of hours worked in each pay reference period.
