7.9 Actual hours used in calculations

Last amended 
10 August 2017

Actual hours should reflect the amount of hours the person is actually working in employment. Where a person is participating in a graduated return to work plan, the actual hours the person is working should be confirmed.

Where a person is undertaking a paced return to work, they are to be regarded as being employed for the hours of workplace attendance. In a paced return to work the person would usually attend for a full work day but their time is alternated between periods of productive activity and periods of rest.

Hours undertaken as part of an approved work trial under a DVA rehabilitation program should be regarded as hours worked for the week and are recorded on a work trial diary authorised by the employer.
