New RSE Regulations

On the 1st of October 2023, significant changes are set to take place in the Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme as to sick leave entitlements and minimum wage. Will MYOB have an upgrade for this?

Re: New RSE Regulations

Hi @Jo8 

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

As of now, we haven't heard of any separate upgrades to include the changes. However, I would like to inform you that I have raised your query with the payroll teams and will provide an update once I have the related information.

 

@jenniek @LynleyAveris would you like to provide any insights about these changes?

 

Cheers

Priya Selvaraj

Re: New RSE Regulations

HI @PriyaSelvaraj @LynleyAveris, @Jo8 

The RSE minimum wages increases to 24.97 from 1 October - can't see anything that would need a payroll upgrade. Just need to increase minimum rate for employees affected.

Re: New RSE Regulations

Hi @PriyaSelvaraj @Jo8 

Further - I have found information that new sick leave provisions that RSE workers will be entitled to 2 days sick leave from the day they start(after 1 Oct)  and +2 days every month until they reach their 10 day entitlement at the 4 month anniversay. However I can't confirm that this has actually gone into law. I'll post again when I confirm this.

Re: New RSE Regulations

There are changes to the sick leave entitlements :

"New Sick Leave Entitlement for RSE visa starting 1/10/2023: From day one of their employment, RSE workers will be entitled to paid sick leave. Employees will receive two days of sick leave on their first day of employment, then another two days every month from then, until they reach a total of ten days of sick leave entitlement four months into Employment.how can I deal with this in the payroll"

There are changes to the sick leave entitlements"

 

Does anyone have any idea on how I can deal with this in the payroll system?

Re: New RSE Regulations

i @Jo8 

I see MYOB hasn't answered yet - so I suspect there will be no changes to the software until next year. I would manage this manually as it only affects new employees from 1/10/23. You will need to give your employee 2 days sick leave entitlement on day one, then add another 2 days on each month anniversary. I would suggest putting in a reminder for each employee it affects, so it will pop up and remind you. Add the days to current sick leave due, but leave the maximum at 20 and annual entitlement at 10. You will also need to adjust the balance at the 6 month anniversary to reduce the 10 days the system will allocate at that point.

Hope this helps. Minimum wage will be adjusted accordingly to what it needs to be.

Re: New RSE Regulations

Hi @Jo8 

 

Sick leave adjustments need to be done manually, as there will be no changes to the software. I do see that @jenniek has suggested a workaround on how this change can be done.

 

Hope this helps and @jenniek I really do appreciate your input to this post.

 

Cheers
