Enterprise agreements can provide an opportunity to introduce measures which increase the flexibility of working time arrangements. Flexibility may be achieved in regard to shiftwork arrangements.

Approaches which could be adopted to achieve flexibility in this regard include:

  • expanding the set of normal hours to possibly alleviate the need to use a shift roster and as a result the requirement to pay shift loadings; and
  • using a mixture of five and seven day shift rosters to cover weekend work where business does not already operate on a 24-hour basis.

The above information has been taken from the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry's (ACCI's) 'Best Practice' Information Paper No 6 - Working Time in Enterprise Agreements.
