Notes on Casual Academic Staff Salary Structure

The salary rates for casual academic staff are calculated using the following formulae:

(i) Lecturing and higher marking rate

The base rate applicable to lecturing, full subject co-ordination, or for purposes of the higher marking rate is determined by reference to the second step of the full-time Level B scale and calculated as follows:

Second step of the full-time Level B scale /52 +  25%

37.5

(ii)       Rate applicable to performance of other duties involving full-time subject coordination or possession of a relevant doctoral qualification

The base rate applicable where the staff member possesses a relevant doctoral qualification is determined by reference to the sixth step of the full-time Level A scale and calculated as follows:

Sixth step of the full-time Level A scale /52 +  25%

37.5

(iii)      Rate applicable to all other duties

The base rate applicable to all other duties including tutoring rates is determined by reference to the second step of the full-time Level A scale and calculated as follows:

Second step of the full-time Level A scale /52 + 25%

37.5

Where:  

  • 52 = weeks in a calendar year;
  • 37.5 = notional hours worked per week; and
  • 25% = casual loading.

* For tutoring and lecturing duties, the rate is then multiplied by the number of hours contained within each session, e.g. One (1) hour of delivery and two (2) hours of associated working time.
