The right of employers to manage their staff has been a long standing feature of common law it is often known as managerial prerogative. The right to manage is often conditioned by other rules, so that the right is not unfettered, that is the employer can only manage staff within reasonable limits. The difference between an employers right to manage and the desire of staff to have a measure of control over the way that they work has always been a central feature of the industrial relations landscape. Managerial prerogative is qualified by things such as: Federal and State laws (e.g. the Fair Work Act 2009) Industrial Awards/Agreements Contractual terms applying to particular employees Common law.
Work planning assists managers and staff to reach a shared understanding of work tasks and targets, development activities and considerations to workload.Work planning centres on managers and staff reaching a shared understanding of:What work is to be completed and by whenWhy it is to be done (the context and the value of the work)How it is to be done (including the expected behaviours)What good performance looks likeHow work objectives can align with strategic and operational prioritiesProfessional development activities and career plan Performance expectations in each phase, including the year of year appraisal rating.
What are we measuring?Managers need to be confident that they are representing staff performance accurately and fairly. Each staff member needs to be assessed on their own individual merit in the context of their respective peer group. At the end of year appraisal staff will receive an overall performance appraisal.
Performance Management also involves corrective action and potentially disciplinary procedures with the aim of assisting staff to meet required standards. Generally, corrective action is necessary when performance problems continue to persist even after a period of management coaching and performance feedback.2Why?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 KPIs 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 spendLimited timesheet details available for Casual and Time ApproverNo legislative compliance with Casual Long Service Leave (LSL) act90 % of Payroll Overpayments are due to paying time in advance for Regular Casual staff
What? Key ChangesThe 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 ESSTime Approver Approves work schedules and timesheets but cannot enter or edit a timesheetCloser alignment of actual Casual spend to Budget, including a limited time frame of 6 weeks to retrospectively edit and submit timesheetsEnhanced detailed reporting of actual time worked including pay details and timesheet approval statusSystem generated Long Service Leave (LSL) provision for eligible Casual staffAll Casuals will now be paid in arrears
