|Meal allowance entitlements|
The payment of a meal allowance ($13.14 from 1 July 2010) is triggered in overtime situations.
This rate applies from 1 July 2010 and will likely be varied with effect from July 2011.
An employee working overtime for 2 continuous hours or more, or commencing work 2 hours or more prior to normal starting time, must be paid a meal allowance. The exception is where the employer supplies a meal in the overtime period (sub-clause 26.3).
