What is work? ‘Work’ is a hard word to define. One person’s idea of work can be another person’s idea of leisure. Something that you dislike doing at work, you might quite enjoy in a leisure setting. Most dictionary definitions of the word ‘work’ say that work activity is directed at a specific purpose, and involves mental or physical effort ( www.myfuture.edu.au) Why are there different work patterns? Work
-- Show What You Know -- Employment based on working for a set period of time. These workers are usually self employed and hire out their services in order to complete set tasks. Work performed for an organisation or group, where a person gives their time/skills and is not paid for their service. Employment based on the demand for workers at certain times of the year. Employment based on working 35 hours or more per week. Employment based on two people voluntarily sharing the duties of one fulltime position. FULL TIME JOB SHARE SEASONAL CONTRACT VOLUNTARY
Pattern of Work Definition FULL TIME Employment based on working 35 hours or more per week. These employees receive entitlements such as paid annual leave, paid sick leave, and parental leave etc. PART TIME Employment based on working a regular number of hours but less than 35 hours each week. A worker in this type of employment usually receives all, or most, of the benefits of a full time employee but on a proportional basis. CASUAL Employment which is based on an hourly or daily basis and where there is no guarantee of a full weeks work. A worker in this type of employment does not enjoy the same rights and entitlements as full time/part time employees. PERMANENT Employment that is ongoing and stable, usually for a period of 12 months or more. It can be in the form of full time, part time, or casual employment and these employees are entitled to such things as paid leave. CONTRACT Employment based on working for a set period of time. These workers are usually self employed and hire out their services in order to complete set tasks. SHIFTWORK Employment based on working a set/agreed number of hours over a 24 hour period. Employees may work 8 hour/12 hour shifts and can work at different times of the day, afternoons/nights, depending on when they are needed. VOLUNTARY Work performed for an organisation or group, where a person gives their time/skills and is not paid for their service. SELF EMPLOYMENT Employment where a person performs work for their own business or company. These people often work long hours and things such as income and leave entitlements are usually determined by profits made by the business. JOB SHARE Employment based on two people voluntarily sharing the duties of one fulltime position. Both workers are treated as permanent part time employees and as such receive the same entitlements. This pattern of work is only available at the discretion of the employer and is determined as part of a workers agreement/contract. TELECOMMUTING Employment based on working outside of the central work place, through the use of technology – such as the internet, telephone and video conferencing. SEASONAL Employment based on the demand for workers at certain times of the year. Eg. winter snow season. Persons are employed for a specific period of time, dependant on when work is available. WORKING FROM HOME Employment based on the employee completing work from the home, without the need of going in to the central workplace.
