Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
The ordinary time hours normally worked may differ according to the type of work a volunteer is doing. The hours under the relevant award or agreement should be used if known. If the relevant award or agreement staff hours for an occupation is not known, or the volunteer is undertaking a variety of tasks, 38 hours per week should be used as a substitute.
A volunteer art therapy assistant works 10 hours over a week. The relevant award specifies that a full time assistant usually works 38 hours in a week.
Full time equivalent staff units = 10/38 = 0.263 (for that person for a week) This number would then be added to the full time equivalent staff units for all other staff and the number rounded to one decimal place.
This metadata item is not intended to be a completely accurate calculation of staff hours, but a general indication of the number of volunteer hours an outlet is staffed.
This metadata item may be calculated over weeks, fortnights, months or an annual basis.
