Why?
A number of issues have been identified in the current Casual timesheet solution for RMIT. These
issues were identified as part of Internal Audit investigations within respective Schools and also as a
result of monitoring HR KPI’s over a 18 month period. These issues include:
•
No Segregation of Duties (often Time Recording and Approval completed by same person)
•
Casual staff able to lodge long-term retrospective payment claims creating misalignment of actual
to budget spend
•
Limited timesheet details available for Casual and Time Approver
•
No legislative compliance with Casual Long Service Leave (LSL) act
•
90 % of Payroll Overpayments are due to paying time in advance for Regular Casual staff
What? – Key Changes
The project was driven by HR Shared Services to investigate and resolve these issues and current
functionality has been enhanced to deliver:
•
Segregation of Duties •
Time Administrator – Hires a Casual and can enter timesheets but cannot approve
•
All Casual staff are able to enter, edit and submit a timesheet via ESS
•
Time Approver – Approves work schedules and timesheets but cannot enter or edit a timesheet
•
Closer alignment of actual Casual spend to Budget, including a limited time frame of 6 weeks to
retrospectively edit and submit timesheets
•
Enhanced detailed reporting of actual time worked including pay details and timesheet approval
status
•
System generated Long Service Leave (LSL) provision for eligible Casual staff
•
All Casuals will now be paid in arrears

-Time Administrators…continued
No functionality to record absences for Casuals via MDT. If an employee can't maintain their
absences in ESS, an authorised absence form will need to be forwarded to Payroll Services for
processing in SAP.

Casual Long Service Leave (LSL)
Service as a casual staff member which meets the requirements of the Long Service Leave Act 1992
(Vic) will count as service for the purposes of long service leave provisions. This covers service where
employment has been regular and systematic with one employer with no more than a 4 month
absence period between 2 periods of employment.
How will this affect Casuals?
•
Casual staff with a Long Service Leave entitlement are able to apply for Long Service Leave.
Payment of unused long service entitlement will be made where employment terminates after
seven years service which meets the requirements of the Long Service Leave Act 1992 (Vic)

•
No affect – Approved LSL will need to be applied for via the Payroll Services team
How will this affect the Payroll process?

Approved LSL for Casual staff with a Long Service Leave entitlement, will be processed by the
Payroll Services team upon receipt of the “Casual Absence Form”
How will this affect Finance?
