1.7 REINSTATEMENT OF REST DAYS
The following applies when a rest day is re-rostered for an operational need and officers are subsequently told they are no longer required.
|Notice of no longer being required||Outcome|
|With more than 7 days’ notice||Rest day will be taken with no compensation|
|With less than 8 days’ notice||The officer can choose between taking the rest day with no compensation or working*|
*the officer must work a minimum of 4 hours and compensation should be in line with the period of notice of the original requirement to work:
- Less than 5 days’ notice = double time
- Less than 15 days’ notice = time and a half
- 15 or more days’ notice = another rest day
- Double-lock rest day deployment = time and a half
A reinstated rest day will count towards the excessive rest day disruption allowance (see section 4.1). Except where an officer had volunteered to work on a double-lock rest day deployment in the first instance.
