Staff are advised that a number of employment related ACU policies and procedures have recently been updated.

 

Updated HR documents

The University continues to review and update HR and related policies and procedures following the approval of the Australian Catholic University Staff Enterprise Agreement 2013-2017 (the Agreement) that came into effect on 19 March 2014, and as necessary to ensure compliance with legislation.

 

The following revised HR policies relating to a range of employment provisions were considered by the ACUSCC at the meeting held on 25 September 2014.

Following consultation, the Acting Vice-Chancellor has approved the following updated documents, effective from 13 October 2014:

  • Meal Allowance During Overtime Policy
    This Policy has been updated with an increase in the meal allowance rate for 2014 – 2015, consistent with the Australian Taxation Office guidelines (ATO Determination TD2014/19).  
  • Reimbursement of Actual Expenses Policy
    This policy has been updated with an increase in the monies available to reimburse staff for 2014-2015, consistent with the Australian Taxation Office guidelines (ATO Tax Ruling TD 2014/19).  
  • Minimum Employment Period Policy
    This Policy has been updated to incorporate the appropriate references from the Fair Work Act, 2009.
  • Misconduct and Serious Misconduct Policy

  • Superannuation Policy
