Australian Super is the nominated superannuation provider for CSCS.

If you join Australian Super we recommend registering for an online account to monitor and manage your Superannuation. You can do this from their website at https://portal.australiansuper.com/login.aspx. Download the Australian Superannuation Application form

Excerpt from the Charles Sturt Campus Services Enterprise Agreement 2019

  • 13.1 CSCS will maintain, for employees as at the date of FWC approval of this Agreement, the employer contributions into the current fund and arrangements for superannuation in effect at that time.
  • 13.2 For those employed by CSCS during the life of this Agreement, CSCS will provide the superannuation employer contributions as required by sub-clause
  • 13.3. The superannuation guarantee will be paid for all ordinary hours worked. 13.3 CSCS will maintain superannuation at 11% until such time as the Government Superannuation Guarantee (GSG) exceeds 11%, CSCS will increase the superannuation payments in line with the GSG.
  • 13.4 Australian Super is the nominated superannuation provider for CSCS. While this Agreement is in operation, all superannuation contributions for existing employees who are members of Australian Super, and for all new employees, shall be made to Australian Super. *

* Regarding 13.4: Please note that in 2021 Super Reforms legislation was passed which removed the right for employers to exempt themselves from Choice of Fund as from 1 November 2021. The CSCS Enterprise Agreement 2019 will be updated to reflect this when it is next renewed. From 1 November 2021 Employees can elect for superannuation contributions to be paid into a complying superannuation fund.  Australian Super is the default superannuation provider for CSCS.  In the absence of election or stapled fund employer contributions default to Australian Super.

Timesheets

Casuals
If you are employed on a Casual basis you will need to submit a timesheet to your Supervisor fortnightly early on the Thursday morning prior to pay day. Please speak to your Supervisor to get a form and understand the process. To enable prompt payment within the pay period you will need to ensure that you get your timesheet in on time and completed clearly

Overtime & Mileage Claims
CSCS Staff may be entitled to claim extra allowances and overtime as outlined in the CSCS EA for example allowances when you are required to use your own vehicle for work purposes or your Supervisor asks your to work additional hours. Please ensure that you read the CSSC EA to understand the entitlements that may apply to you and discuss with your Supervisor if unsure. CSCS uses timesheets to capture and authorise payment for these extra payments. Please speak to your Supervisor to complete a timesheet which will need to be completed and returned to your Supervisor early on Thursday morning the week before pay day.

How do I submit a timesheet?

It is very important to follow the correct procedure for submitting your timesheet to ensure that you are paid your entitlements on time. Failure to complete correctly could delay your payment.

How to submit a timesheet:

  1. Speak with your Supervisor to obtain a timesheet form to complete.
  2. Complete the form using the following time formats eg: 15mins is entered as 0.25, 30 is entered as 0.50, 45mins is entered as 0.75
  3. Anything up to 5 hours includes a paid 10minute break and any work over 5 hours requires you to have an unpaid 30 minute break which you need to record & deduct within your timesheet.
  4. Ensure that you enter the overtime in the correct client column (eg: if you worked over time in a DFM area enter the time in the column titled DFM)
  5. If you are entering overtime please remember only to record the overtime hours on the timesheet (not your standard salary hours) eg: if you normally work from 5am - 8am and you have worked till 10am you would only enter 2hours overtime on your timesheet (which would have included 10minute paid break)
    however if you worked till 11am you would need to have a 30min unpaid break which needs to be added in the break column.
  6. Please ensure all columns are totalled correctly at the end.
  7. Don't forget to sign and date.
  8. Timesheets need to be handed in to your Supervisor by 8am Thursday in the week prior to payday. For pay dates please view the Pay Day Calendar.
