Flexi-Time While Working From Home
Following on from the newsletter sent yesterday, the ASU has also been made aware that Quantum Support Services is refusing to honour Flexi-Time arrangements while working from home is in place during the COVID 19 Pandemic.
Under clause 22.8 Flexi-Time in the Quantum Support Services enterprise agreement, you are entitled to accrue up to a maximum of 8 Flexi-Time unless exceptional circumstances apply.
The clause states;
22.8.1 Flexi-time is accrued when an employee works over the number of hours per fortnight that they have been employed to work, but not exceeding 10 hours per day or hours worked after 7pm or on weekends (any time worked outside the normal spread of hours) is TIL for which authorisation is required, see clause 22. TIME IN LIEU (TIL) OF OVERTIME.
22.8.2 Employees may elect to use the flexi-time system to work up a day off (or part of a day).
22.8.3 Unless exceptional circumstances apply, employees may accumulate up to a maximum of 8 hours flexitime, pro-rata, which is to be taken within a four week period as negotiated with the line manager in order to accommodate operational requirements.
If you believe that your Flexi-Time arrangements have been unreasonably refused please speak with your ASU delegate or the ASU member contact centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a very stressful time for all Victorians and the ASU would expect that QSS act reasonably to assist staff to balance their family commitments with the vital work that you all do while many of you are working from home.
