The Fair Work Commission handed down changes to the Time-off-in-lieu (TOIL) provisions of the Health Professionals and Support Services Award 2010 on 22 August 2016. The new provisions have been in effect since the first full pay period on or after the 22 August 2016. These changes apply to employees and employers covered by the award. Employees and employers in all businesses in all states with the exception of unincorporated businesses in Western Australia are covered by the award. Thus the changes do not apply to unincorporated practices in WA. The intention of the new TOIL clause (28.3 Time off instead of payment for overtime), which replaces the previous TOIL clause 28.3, is to clarify the intention and interpretation of the original clause. An explanation of the new clause is below. Each explanation of a subclause of 28.3 is numbered according to the numeral it corresponds to in clause 28.3 in the award.
