Junior Employees Hours Reminder

Public news

Employers are reminded that certain Awards, including the Vehicle Repair, Services and Retail Award 2020, contain restrictions on the hours when junior employees (including apprentices under the age of 18 years) will be permitted to work. For the Vehicle Award, no employee under the age of 18 years may work unsupervised between 7.00-9.00pm, and may not be employed between 9.00pm and 6.30am.

A number of other restrictions may also apply, as well as the overarching obligation under WHS laws to consider fatigue management and safe working practices. If you need to clarify any aspect relating to hours of work, please contact the WR team on wr@mtasant.com.au or on (08) 8291 2000.
