1 January 2018
The award has been updated to reflect changes made as part of the Fair Work Decision 4 year review of modern awards. The update provides clarification in clause 10.5(e) on when a school bus driver should receive the minimum shift engagement rule of 2 hours. This can occur on 2 separate shifts in the same day.
The only changes required were to update the clause numbering in our rule set. However, based on the changes above, we would suggest you review the 'rule set consolidation' settings. Go to business > payroll settings > rule sets > select "Passenger Vehicle Transportation Award" from the drop list > Click 'Passenger Vehicle Transport Employee Rule Set' and review the 'shift consolidation' section. We recommend you do not select 'consolidate shifts starting on the same day' but instead select 'Consolidate shifts within [x] of each other' as shown below:
