enter the information.
Standard daily working hours = 7:15 (7 hours and 15 minutes)
If an employee is rostered to work other than standard daily working hours (eg: part time employees, employees accessing compressed working arrangements),
their daily rostered hours must be entered in the ordinary hours row.
If an employee commences mid week or part way through the current work cycle enter 0:00 in the cells in the 'ordinary hours' row on those days prior to the
commencement of employment.
If a full time employee reduces their fraction to part time within a work cycle they must update the value in the appropriate cell(s) in the 'ordinary hours' row to
their new rostered times.
maximum ordinary daily hours = 9:30 (9 and 1/2 hours).
Entering greater than 9:30 hours on any day will prompt you to indicate whether you are authorised to work in excess of the maximum ordinary daily hours.
Hours in excess of 9:30 (overtime) on any day will only be accepted if you indicate that authorisation to work those hours has been granted.
A meal break of at least 30 minutes should be taken within 5 1/2 hours of commencing your shift. Working for greater than 5 1/2 hours without taking a meal
break will only be accepted if you indicate that authorisation to work those hours has been granted.
A work cycle consists of 28 calendar days. The timesheet is broken into two fortnights (ie: weeks 1&2 and weeks 3&4)
Under departmental policy, the maximum hours which can be carried forward from weeks 3 & 4 to weeks 1 & 2 = 36:15 (36 Hours and 15 Minutes). Supervisors
have the discretion to approve a higher carry over balance provided specific criteria are met (refer to policy link above). Hours in excess of 36:15 will be forfeited
unless Executive Director/Institute Director has approved the carryover in excess of 36:15.
Full ATO days are to be recorded as 7:15 in the 'full day ATO' row for that day. Partial day ATO will be deducted from your credit time after you have entered
your hours worked for that day.

At the end of each fortnight press this button to move forward to the following fortnight. Timesheets must be submitted to your supervisor on a
fortnightly basis for approval. At the beginning of week 3 the button will appear as shown in the example. At the beginning of week 1 the button will
appear as Start Weeks 3 & 4.
The mouse pointer will flicker as the timesheet performs a range of calculations to ensure that data has been entered correctly before moving forward to the
next fortnight. This should only take a few moments.
12 hour to 24 Hour Time Conversion
To convert pm time to 24 hour time simply add 12 to the pm time. Eg: 5pm + 12hrs = 17:00
Moving between fortnights and work cycles
At this time, if there are any errors contained in data entered on the timesheet, these will be identified and you will need to correct them before the timesheet
can be refreshed.
The screen will then be refreshed and any ATO and TOIL balances etc carried forward will appear on the refreshed timesheet
You will be asked if you wish to archive and print your timesheet. Answering yes to this prompt will enable the timesheet to be refreshed. Answering no to this
prompt will return you to the completed timesheet.

information includes:
