# Understanding your salary and payslip

#### Regular part-time teachers

A regular part-time teacher's salary is based on their relevant point on the salary scale plus allowances and the number of hours they are contracted to work each week.

To work out your correct weekly salary:
a) Determine your relevant point on the salary scale, and add allowances (if applicable). Divide this number by 52.18 (weeks in the year, allowing for leap year)
b) Divide by 22 (22 hours = full time hours)
c) Multiply by the number of hours you are contracted to work

This will indicate how much gross salary you should be paid each week, before deductions. As teachers are paid every fortnight, you should multiply this figure by two to check if the 'gross salary' figure on your payslip is correct.

If you work more than the prescribed number of hours in one week, you will be paid for these hours at an hourly rate determined by dividing your relevant salary point plus allowances (if applicable) by 735.

#### Temporary whole-time teachers

Temporary whole-time teachers are paid an incremental salary each fortnight over the year, including holiday periods.

To work out your correct weekly salary:
a) Determine your relevant point on the salary scale, and add allowances (if applicable).
b) Divide this number by 52

This will indicate how much gross salary you should be paid each week, before deductions. As teachers are paid every fortnight, you should multiply this figure by two to check if the 'gross salary' figure on your payslip is correct.

#### Non-casual part-time teachers

To work out your correct weekly salary:
a) Determine your relevant point on the salary scale, and add allowances (if applicable).
b) Divide this number by 735 (this will give you your hourly rate of pay)
c) Multiply this by the number of hours you teach each week.

This will indicate how much gross salary you should be paid each week, before deductions. As teachers are paid every fortnight, you should multiply this figure by two to check if the 'gross salary' figure on your payslip is correct.

#### Casual part-time teachers

If you work in excess of 150 hours in one year, the additional hours are paid at a higher non-casual part-time rate. This rate is determined by dividing your relevant point on the salary scale plus allowances (if applicable) by 735.

#### CID teachers

CID 18 hours or more
A teachers with a CID for 18 hours or above per week is paid as a permanent teacher, i.e. they are paid a yearly salary of their relevant point on the salary scale plus allowances.

CID with fewer than 18 hours
A teacher with a CID who teaches fewer than 18 hours a week is paid a fraction of their relevant point on the salary scale plus allowances based on the number of hours they are contracted to work each week.

a) Determine your relevant point on the salary scale, and add allowances (if applicable). Divide this number by 52 (weeks in the year)
b) Divide again by 22 (22 hours = full time hours)
c) Multiply by the number of hours you are contracted to work each week

This will indicate how much gross salary you should be paid each week, before deductions. As teachers are paid every fortnight, you should multiply this figure by two to check if the 'gross salary' figure on your payslip is correct.
