Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(i)-(iii) the details as reported by the Shared Service HR for the Department of Justice & Community Safety including ACT Courts, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Emergency Services Agency and the ACT Public Trustee are provided in the table below.


Total Overtime Hours

Average Hours per Employee

Total Overtime Cost

Average Cost per Employee

2009 – 14 April 2010















(iv) There is no provision for “unpaid overtime” in the ACT Public Service.

(v) Flextime provides a framework for an employee’s pattern of attendance at work to be varied according to the needs of the employee and the requirements of the work unit while maintaining an average of 36.75 hours per week. Individuals and managers are responsible for recording hours worked. Flextime balances are not centrally captured and recorded.

(vi) An employee may have a maximum flextime credit equal to the employee’s normal weekly hours of duty, at the end of the settlement period. A settlement period will comprise two pay periods (i.e. four weeks).

(vii) For flextime arrangements to work effectively, managers and employees have a responsibility to manage hours of work to ensure that individuals are not building up excessive flex credits.

(viii) and (ix) This information is not separately recorded, and I am not prepared to authorise the use of the considerable resources that would be required to determine the figure.
