Contract Set Up + Approval
Please note the start and finish date of your CASUAL CONTRACT.

Please refer any requests for extensions to the contract date for system access to your subject coordinator.
Information for all casual staff including submitting and amending TIMECARDS and saving timecard templates is provided via the page link.
All staff employed on a casual basis will have a contract reference for each casual contract accessed via THEMIS, you will find a reference pdf via this link. Your Supervisor will need to approve your timecard before the deadline of 4.00pm on the Monday before a pay run. Once approved by the deadline, it will be paid in the next available pay run. Please note, if you tutor more than one subject you will need to differentiate your timecard entries to reflect this. The unique contract references allow you to differentiate between subjects. This requires you to have accepted one contract for each subject you teach.
This schedule sets out the University's PAY POLICY, including for casual tutorials. Please note that there are studio tutor and studio leader rates that are specific to our Faculty, please refer to your contract or confirm with your Subject coordinator if you have questions.
