I am newly employed, on a salary basis and on a 10 days-on, 4 days-off roster. My contract states I am paid for a 38-hour week wages with reasonable overtime required. This overtime is unpaid. Once I arrived on site, we were informed that we will be required to work 10-hour days. This equates to 70 hours a weeks. We have also been made to carry out an afterhours call out roster (every 2nd week for myself) in which we will not get paid for. In the month I have been here, I have already had 3 middle of the night call outs. We were not told we would have afterhours call outs and it does not state it in the employment contract. My first question is: Can I be forced to work 70 hours a week when getting paid for only 38? I would class reasonable overtime as 2 hours a day maximum. Going off the contract, if I worked 7 days at 38hours a week I would be starting work at 6 am and finishing at 12. Or with reasonable overtime starting at 6 am and working till 2 pm. The next question is: If there is no afterhours callout mentioned on the employment contract, can iI be forced to do these? I am happy to do them but I need to be compensated for my time. I raised the concern for this issue with managers and had the response that they would start paying a $150 one-off payment for on call, but I have not yet received this. However, I am not happy with the 150 payment. I believe we should be receiving a payment for being on call of at least 150, then a minimum of 4 hours payment for each and every callout that occurs. This is the minimum that companies usually provide. I appreciate your time.
