Backpay 2019 – How To Check It
If you are a PPTA member, this pay cycle (September 11) you should have been back-paid the money Novopay owed you as a result of your pay rise.
We have created two calculators to help you determine how much money you should have received (there is one for regulart schools and one for area schools).
Note: If you think your pay is incorrect ask your executive officer at your school to contact Novopay.
Here's how we worked out your backpay
The new rate of pay is payable from 1 July
The new rate has been paid from the beginning of the current pay period (pay from 28 August), i.e. the last 14 days
The rate that was paid up to the beginning of the current pay period (from 1 July to 27 August inclusive) was as the collective agreement
Arrears have been paid until the new rate was put into effect (i.e. arrears have been paid from 1 July to 27 August). This has been calculated as follows:
- The difference between old step value and new step value when divided by 365 gives a daily pay increase. For those who are not full time this needs to be multiplied by the fraction of full time as shown on the payslip and then by 25/22.5 to add the 11% loading.
- There are 58 days between 1 July 2019 and 27 August 2019. 58 multiplied by the daily pay increase gives the full amount of back pay.
How to read your payslip
On your payslip, the full amount of back pay is shown in two lines, one for salary and the other for holiday pay during the term break. They look like this:
In the period 19/06/2019 - 27/08/2019, 0 days Salary per annum Arrears XXX.XX
In the period 03/07/2019 - 30/07/2019, 0 days Teach HP Perm per annum Arrears XX.XX
Those teachers who have been attested during this period and gone up a pay step will need to do the calculations for before and after their attestation date.
If you think your pay is incorrect ask your executive officer at your school to contact Novopay.
