Mr Finch, Deputy Secretary, Department of Education said the number of working days in a financial year varies very slightly from year to year, depending on the calendar.
“Despite this, as a direct provision of the Tasmanian State Service Industrial Awards, staff who are paid an annual salary will continue to receive the same annual salary regardless of the number of days worked according to the calendar for that year.
“Specific technical calculations are undertaken each year to ensure that the correct annual salary continues to be paid in accordance with the Award regardless of the specific number of working days,” he said.
