Equity-Spada screen agreement: Hold Days and Standby Days
Nearly every week, the Equity New Zealand E-Bulletin will explain a clause in our Equity-SPADA recommended screen agreement, and publish this explanation on the website.
This week we look at: Hold Days and Standby Days
Standby days are paid at 25% of either the Non-Performance or Performance rate asapplicable if the standby notice is between 1 to 10 hours. If more than 10 hours notice is given, there is no entitlement to the Standby Rate. Hold days are days that you must hold in readiness to be called to work, and are therefore paid at the higher rate of 50% of either Non-Performance or Performance Daily Rate, as applicable. If one of your scheduled days is cancelled because of weather and rescheduled for another day, you must be paid the Hold Day rate, not the Standby rate. If the production wants to move that weather day, again the Hold Day rate applies because you have already been placed on hold for that day. You should not be paid the lower Standby Day rate in this case.
