Employees can agree to supervise clients in excursion activities that involve overnight stays from home.

For more information on excursions see Hours of work in the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award.

Excursions are not the same as sleepovers or 24 hour care shifts.

This means that the sleepover and 24 hour care provisions don’t apply to excursions.

However, an employee who works an excursion between Monday and Friday gets paid the sleepover allowance for each night they stay away from home.

Use our Pay and Conditions Tool to calculate the sleepover allowance.
