    Employee Details

    Payroll details report for the month of October 2019 and October 2020 (rosters and timesheets are not acceptable).

    This report must include:

    • The employee names
    • The hours that employees actually worked 

    FTE principles and calculations are as follows:

    • Employees must work in the Northern Territory
    • 1 FTE = 72hrs worked per fortnight, per employee in the business (36hrs worked per week)
    • If a single employee works more than 72 hours in a fortnight this is still counted as a single FTE or max 72 hrs per the FTE hours.
    • If a single employee works less than 72 hrs per fortnight, the FTE count is proportionate. Eg. Employee A works 18 hours in a fortnight this is calculated as 18hrs/72hrs = 0.25FTE or 18 hours per the FTE hours.
    • A standard rounding processes to the nearest FTE will apply to the total. If the total FTE count is below 1FTE, these will be rounded up to 1FTE.
    I have valid evidence of employees and financials as per the terms and conditions * Required
