Ordinary pay

The definition of 'ordinary pay' for the purposes of portable long service.

What is ordinary pay?

Ordinary pay is the gross wages or salary, prior to deductions such as PAYG tax, salary sacrifice and salary packaging items, paid or payable to the worker for work under an award or agreement (including a common law contract).

If a worker ordinarily works weekends, or shift work, and gets penalty rates then those penalty rates will form part of the worker’s ordinary pay.
