What counts as a days work?

    Recommended Posts


    I need a bit of advise. If I am working for a farmer on a casual basis 5 days a week for 10 weeks, but some days I am only required to work for 2 hrs, does this 2 hr day still count toward the 88 days?

    I am struggling to find a definite answer online...


    thank you!

    From Policy:

    "Under policy, three months is taken to mean 88 days, which is the shortest possible combination of months in a calendar year. One full day of work is defined as having worked the minimum number of hours considered a standard day by the particular industry in which the applicant is employed. Generally, the Australian working week is 35 to 40 hours, comprising 7 to 8 hours of work each day. Individual employers cannot set a smaller period of time than the industry standard to satisfy the specified work requirement."
