Question: I have been successful in getting a part-time job at a nursing home run by RSL LifeCare. What should I ask for before starting?
Answer: You should receive, before commencing employment, an agreement in writing setting out the guaranteed minimum number of hours to be worked and the rostering arrangements that will apply to those hours. Under
Clause 12.3 of the RSL LifeCare, NSWNMA and HSU NSW Enterprise Agreement 2015–2017, this should be discussed between you and RSL Lifecare and an agreement reached.
You'll automatically become a member of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation
