Customer Question

My wife & I are Directors of a family company which has a Victorian rural weekday mail delivery contract with Australia Post. My wife works 4.5 hrs per day & our daughter works 2.5 hrs per day. Both are casual employees of the company. The company supplies a fully serviced vehicle in both cases.
Could you please advise of hourly casual pay rate and what Award this rate comes under.
Thank you.

Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.

What would you say they are employed as? Couriers?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Probably a 'Driver' although the job also requires about 45 minutes mail sorting.

There is a postal service award that they may come under and the hourly rates under that award are shown at the following link

A casual is given 20% on top of the classification rate that you say they work.

The Award is at the following link and you can see the description of the classifications at point 15 on the left
